About me

Hello, I am Polly, I am a person-centred counsellor with several years of experience working in NHS Primary Care. I offer a professional, calm, supportive and confidential space for you to discuss and reflect on what is troubling you. Together we will set out to carefully explore your feelings and your concerns to try to understand them more deeply.    

We will explore your world and the possibilities to promote constructive change, empowerment and to build your resilience. I receive regular clinical supervision to support my work and am committed to ongoing professional development.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and my work is in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework.
