When you accept yourself for who you are, you are able to greatly enhance your life. Let me support you through this process to be heard. I work with Couples, Children, Adolescents and Adults and older people with trauma, anxiety, relationship issues, depression, panic disorders, anger issues, bereavement and loss, and many other issues. Let's talk, I provide the space and safety for you to explore anything that might be challenging you. I am emphatic, insightful and non-judgemental. My aim is to build a therapeutic relationship with you to enable you to explore thoughts and emotions which can promote personal growth.
I work with different approaches, Person Centred, Integrative and Behavioural (REBT/CBT) therapies. My counselling methods are tailored specifically and agreed with you. I believe that each individual has an uniqueness that is pertinent to them and I nurture that belief.
My belief is that everyone has within them the capacity to develop , change and grow into a fully functional person. I create a supportive, gentle and kind environment which helps to build a strong relationship with my clients. I encourage my clients to grow and to relinquish negative/unhealthy beliefs and behaviours.
Key to this is my compassion. I accept the traits of each individual, which helps to build our relationship, nurture change and accentuate growth.

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.
