The prospect of having counselling could be daunting. I am able to provide a supportive and neutral environment where it is possible to explore emotions and communicate in ways you may find difficult at present. I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space where you are accepted and together, we are able to explore and understand any problems or concerns that you may have.
I have the benefit of being an Integrative Practitioner, which means I am professionally trained in Psychodynamic, Person-Centred and Cognitive Behavioural therapies. I practice by using the knowledge of more than one approach to ensure that the therapy I offer is flexible and suited for each of my clients, respecting that every individual is unique.
At our initial consultation, we will have the opportunity to talk about your concerns and your thoughts that may have led you to seek counselling. This will be an opportunity to determine whether we are able to work together. You may wish to think about our initial assessment before deciding whether you feel counselling will offer you a way forward.

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.
