About me

We come to therapy because we want to make changes , to heal , to be heard , understood or maybe to understand , to strengthen and to grow .

I offer Online Counselling , Face to Face in person and Walk and Talk Counselling / Therapy in-person during a distanced countryside walk or sitting within a quiet private setting.

Are you feeling at a crossroads in your life ?

Do you need a safe place to explore how to move forwards?

A time where you can be exactly how you need to be – a safe equal space between client and therapist where we can explore together the things that are troubling you and what you’d like to change about your life.

I am BACP registered and trained in the integrated model of therapy, this type of therapy takes account of the whole person; emotional, physical and mental.

I have many years of experience as a therapist and have worked in a wide range of settings, with many different issues. I help clients to make sense of what they are finding difficult and find new ways forward.

I work with my Adult clients and over 16's at their pace, listening sensitively to what needs to be heard and understood, what needs to heal and made well.

I feel passionate about helping my clients to flourish and grow enabling them to feel better about themselves.

All sessions are private and confidential. I will not share any information from or about you, except in exceptional circumstances (i.e. in the unlikely circumstances you or someone else is at risk of serious harm). I discuss my work, on a strictly anonymous basis, with my supervisor to ensure I am providing the best service possible.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

Life changes can be challenging they can cause stress, anxiety, depression, fear, anger, loneliness and confusion.

We get thrown off our path, into the unknown. We become challenged and possibly lost. How do we find a way out, a way forward?

When we come to a crossroads or transition in our lives, counselling can support to explore what is possible. Find out what speaks to you individually. What do you need to change to help you find new growth within yourself? Explore new beginnings.

I feel passionate about helping my clients to flourish and grow enabling them to feel better about themselves.
