About me

My counselling service is consciously aimed toward supporting men, providing a space to feel safe and supported to work through issues.  

Some of the reasons to come to counselling include; Sex or Relationship Issues, Anxiety & Depression, Issues at Work, Bullying - verbal, emotional or physical, Family Issues - past and/or present, Gay and Bisexual issues or struggling to come out, and coming to terms with loss and bereavement.
I am a fully qualified Person Centred Therapist and registered member of the BACP.

I offer a safe, confidential space where you have the opportunity to talk openly and express your feelings.  This can help you begin to develop your own stronger sense of self and start to make the right choices to live a more fulfilling, authentic life.

People often find it difficult to reach out for support.  In counselling we will work together to help you find your own potential to realise the changes you want to make for a happier, more productive and authentic life.

We often feel unable to move on or shift our patterns of behaviour that start to have an affect on our own wellbeing and that of those around us. Our relationships may start to breakdown or we feel unable to be in one all together. We can be finding ourselves isolated, overwhelmed and misunderstood.

It can be hard to work through all this alone, and by being in therapy we can work together in a safe, non judgemental, confidential space where we will work toward building a genuine trusting relationship together. In this supportive, confidential atmosphere you can begin to develop your own stronger sense of yourself, work on your issues and build a greater sense of self-worth. This will then allow you to start making the right choices which will lead to the changes you need to live a more fulfilling, authentic life.

Why do we have therapy?

Some of the reasons people come to counselling include;

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sex or Relationship Issues
  • Gay and bisexual issues or struggling to come out
  • Sexual abuse
  • Bullying, verbal, emotional or physical
  • Issues at work
  • Coming to terms with loss, bereavement
  • Struggling to live an authentic life

Counselling is a safe, confidential space for people to talk where they can begin to work on their issues without judgement, prejudice or interpretation. It's a place where you can develop a trusting relationship with your counsellor and talk openly about what's going on for you, and how your emotions may be affecting you at this time in your life.

I am a fully qualified Person Centred Therapist and registered member of the BACP.  I have experience working with people who have come to therapy for a variety of reasons.

How does Therapy Help?
Therapy can be effective in helping you;

  • Have a better understanding of yourself
  • Lead to you having more peace of mind and acceptance
  • Encourage you make better decisions going forward
  • Help you develop new tools to cope better and to let go of unhealthy behaviour patterns

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
