I help adults and young people to break the cycle of destructive patterns of behaviour
You have taken the first step in the journey to improve your relationships and emotional well-being.
I am a fully qualified counsellor in Somerset with over 8 years of continuous experience. Over the years, I have developed a unique way of working which I have found to result in a more long term outcome for my clients than traditional counselling alone.
I offer a free half-hour consultation on the phone to find out what you need to explore and to give me an understanding of your situation.
EMAIL, PHONE OR TEXT TO BOOK A FREE PHONE CONSULTATION
This time is to clarify joint understanding and we can develop a sense of how we might work together.
You may then book an initial session where we can further deepen a joint understanding of your needs, this session is likely to include some Integrative Therapy (ie a mixture of therapies drawn from different practices). It is possible that this may be enough to help you move on in life.
If we both feel that further sessions would be beneficial, I will work with you to assess your counselling requirements. Through this process you can get a feel for how it is to work with me, it is important that you find a counsellor that you feel comfortable with.
Transformation is possible
My aim is to offer a compassionate counselling relationship to help you with the challenges and difficult emotions that life throws at you.
I offer a safe, confidential and available space in which you can bring immediate or long term challenges.

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.
