I’m am trained as an integrative counsellor and use different therapeutic approaches. Together, we will identify what you would like to achieve from counselling and your expectations. In our first session we can discuss how many sessions you may need and we can decided to extend these sessions if required. During lockdown and moving forward I offer zoom and telephone sessions so you can remain safe at home. Lots of people are finding the current situation very difficult in many different ways. Sometimes we have feelings we don't understand or find our feelings hard to share with the people around us, especially now.
As a weight loss mentor for LighterLife after losing 3 1/2 stone myself I can also offer one on one sessions to explore your relationship with food.
Each session is for 50 minutes. It's important that you have a private place/room where you can talk freely and comfortably.
Please get in contact if you require any further information.

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).
