I am now providing both face to face and online sessions.
In counselling I provide a safe, empathic and non-judgmental space in which you can explore pain, confusion and difficulty. Together we can help you explore feeling low, sad or anxious and draw out your innate resources to help you to cope and facilitate change.
I believe a good counselling relationship is the most significant factor in the therapeutic process, and as an integrative counsellor I draw on a range of techniques to help you develop self-awareness and self-compassion.
We may look at how the past has impacted on your life, affecting relationships and contributing to repeating patterns. I particularly value looking at family issues such as childhood neglect and emotional and narcissistic abuse, self-esteem, relationships and a loss of identity. We may explore how you are coping with transition, change, loss or a feeling of being 'stuck' and difficulty making decisions.
Whatever you are facing, please get in touch for a phone consultation to explore your needs from therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
My background is in education and I have a strong interest in literature, music and the arts. I have years of experience working with young adults outside of counselling and through my training and understand the many challenges of this difficult life-stage.
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

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).
