I am an Accredited and Registered Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) with over 14 years clinical experience. I practice according to the BACP's Code of Ethics and Good Practice guidelines.
I offer long and short term (6-12 sessions) face to face counselling to individuals. I practice in Anstey and also have a consulting room near the city centre across from Victoria Park.
Counselling gives you an opportunity to explore what is currently effecting you in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. By working together you can gain a greater understanding of your situation and feelings and make positive changes for the future.
Counselling can be helpful in a variety of situations including: work related stress, low self esteem, anxiety, depression, life transitions, low confidence, trauma, bereavement and other losses.
