Life has many challenges and sometimes we all need help to navigate our way through. There are reasons we get stuck in ways of being that hurt rather than heal. We keep repeating the same behaviours and we can’t see which direction to take because we can't see the bigger picture. We are all influenced by how we feel about ourselves, how we relate to others and our life experiences. But there are ways to better understand ourselves, see the bigger picture and live happier more fulfilling lives. If your thoughts are negative, you feel angry, anxious or overwhelmed, it might be time to take your first steps on the counselling journey.
It is ok not to be ok. We always try to make ourselves and others ‘feel better’ but in trying so hard to find a solution to emotional struggles we often avoid actually feeling our feelings. Life can be tough and learning to believe that it is ok not to be ok is an important part of our healing.
We are all unique individuals, seeing and experiencing things in our own way. Our therapy needs to reflect that. As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I use several different forms of therapy depending on what works for you. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space where we can explore who you are and what has bought you to where you are now.
If you have any questions about me or my therapy please get in touch and let me know.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Due to the current situation with Covid-19 I am only able to see clients via videocall (usually Zoom) at the present time.
