About me

There are times in our life that we feel that challenges and problems have begun to take control over our lives, we feel stuck, confused, in crisis, during these times it is good to make a regular confidential space in our lives to talk to a psychotherapist.

As a psychotherapist and analytically trained I strongly believe that there are many options and possibilities in order to move forward as there is not a fixed map. Sometimes this lack of fixedness might seem like a void, like a trap.

In our work together we will explore stories you bring about yourself and others; what they might be saying or not; what you return to in them that inspires you or troubles you. Often people find healing through the process of talking to someone in confidence for the first time results in a considerable better well BEING and mental health. I do not believe that one type of person or life style is less important or valid that another and I do not sit in judgment in any kind.

I would encourage you to see a period of therapy as a time in your life where you devote a significant period to in-depth work on your thoughts and feelings about yourself, your place int he world and your spiritual life.

I would love to hear from you so please feel free to phone, text or email me to discuss amd arrange an Initial Assessment.

An Initial Assessment is arranged at your convenience and lasts about an hour. During the assessment  you can talk through your issue(s) and we can assess your needs together and also ask questions about the process.

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
