This may be your first time seeking support from a counsellor, or you may have already experienced counselling before. Either way, I understand that looking for the right counsellor can sometimes feel a little daunting.
I would like to reassure you that what ever it is that's troubling you, you don’t have to do it alone. We would work through your counselling journey together and at your own pace.
Counselling with me will offer you the time and space to explore what is going on in your life. It can help you to have a better awareness of self, process your thoughts and feelings and in turn empower you to handle your emotions.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, which means I work with many different styles and techniques, so I can tailor these to best suit your needs.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or if you'd like to arrange an initial session.
Our initial session would be for 50 minutes, either face to face, telephone or via Zoom. This will allow us time to discuss what it is that's troubling you and how I may be able to help. And most importantly, give you a sense as to whether I am someone you'd feel comfortable with.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions
- Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic counselling (Integrative)

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.
