When life leaves us feeling and behaving as if we are not our "best selves", then it might be time to consider therapy. These feelings and behaviours may be caused by everyday life events or major traumas, but whatever the cause therapy can help.
Anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, sadness and feeling overwhelmed can occur at any point in our lives. The last year with social isolation, increases in domestic abuse and huge change in our lives has meant that more of us have struggled with the day-to-day challenges that life can bring. Therapy can provide us with space and time to allow us to understand the reasons for these feelings.
Work with young adults and children, provides a safe and confidential space for them to talk about their concerns, helping them identify alternative ways of thinking and coping mechanisms as well as longer-term resilience.
I believe that therapy is not only for those times when we feel less than able, but is useful at all times of our lives. My approach is that therapy is not an off-the-shelf solution, but a personal experience that allows the time to facilitate growth, resilience, change and develop coping strategies.
Finding the right counsellor for you is the key to successful therapy, so I offer a free 30-minute telephone consultation prior to any therapy.

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.

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).
