I am now providing both face to face and online sessions.
It can sometimes be difficult to gain perspective on our lives or have our feelings acknowledged. In counselling I provide a safe, empathic and non-judgemental space in which you can explore pain, confusion and difficulty. I can help you explore feeling low or anxious and together we can draw out your innate resources to help you to cope.
As an integrative counsellor I believe a good counselling relationship is the most significant factor and I favour long-term relational work that will allow us to look in-depth at present difficulties, repeating patterns and how the past has impacted on the present. I draw on a range of techniques to help you develop self-awareness and self-compassion:
Please get in touch if:
You are experiencing anxiety or low-mood
You are feeling stuck and unable to change things or having trouble making decisions
You feel confusion and self-doubt in relationships or wish to look at repeating patterns in relationships
You have lost a sense of who you are
You are experiencing low self-esteem
You have suffered emotional neglect or abuse
You are experiencing transition, change, loss or moving into a different life stage
You feel afraid that you are ‘lazy’ or that nothing is worth doing unless it is done perfectly
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.
My experience includes NHS IAPT service and counselling with young people ages 18-25.
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.
