Are you seeking support to manage change in your life? There are times in life when we can benefit from talking to a trained professional to help us make sense of issues that are stopping us from living more fully. Someone who can listen with respect and without judgement.
Whether you feel stuck and don’t know where to turn; or you find yourself repeating old patterns yet unable to change; maybe you have lost a loved one and need a place to grieve; or you lack the confidence to express yourself as you would like. Or maybe you have gone through a relationship break-up and cannot get over the hurt, betrayal, anger and are afraid to trust again. I can support you by providing a professional, safe and confidential environment for you to explore whatever you need at a pace that suits you. I believe every individual has the inner resources to manage their life and my role is to support you to uncover and harness yours.
My background is in Psychosynthesis which is a Transpersonal holistic therapy with a practical edge. What appeals to me about Psychosynthesis is that it holds a view of the human being as having a personality and being more than the limitations of the personality. So, when working together, we will include and explore your potential as well as your current and past issues. We will work at your pace and may use mediums such as drawing or dreams but would only do so with your consent. Underlying our work will be the aim of creating greater balance between your body, mind, feelings and essence of who you are.
Clients say they feel more empowered to deal with life’s setbacks. They speak of the choices they now see they have. In a partnership where I bring my skills and you bring your commitment to yourself you can look forward to improved relationships and living a more fulfilling life.
If you would like to have an informal chat with me about your concerns and how we might work together or to arrange an initial session, please feel free to contact me either by telephone or email and I will respond to you within 24 hours. I look forward to speaking with you.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
