Sometimes life's challenges can be overwhelming, reaching out and seeking support is your first courageous step in addressing your concerns. Together we can identify areas you feel are holding you back from taking your chosen path and achieving your goals.
I am a qualified Person-Centred counsellor and a registered member of the BACP, I adhere to their ethical framework of good practice. Some of the areas I have experience in are anxiety, low self esteem, bereavement and substance mis-use. My aim as your counsellor is to create an environment where you feel safe enough to talk through your issues at your own pace, whilst being fully supported on your journey of self awareness and emotional well-being.

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.
