Issues in relationships, social anxiety, loneliness, and depression can lead us to feel overwhelmed and isolated. Often challenges in our lives can have a detrimental effect on self-esteem. I believe that we all have the capacity to change the aspects of our lives that make us feel stuck and unhappy. I can support you as you explore areas of your life that you would like to change, through personal growth and changing patterns of behaviour.
I have experience of lifespan theories and supporting clients as they transition through different stages of their life. I have personal and professional experience of the challenges of parenthood, including overcoming Postnatal Depression. I am also interested in how our early relationships affect relationships in adulthood.
I will support you whilst you find your inner resilience, to make choices that feel authentic to you. I can also help if you have suffered a loss.
The prospect of seeking counselling can be daunting. I will get to know you so that we can build a trusting relationship. I offer a space to express and explore thoughts and feelings in a confidential, supportive and non-judgemental environment. I will walk alongside you, helping you gain understanding and self-acceptance. We are all unique therefore, I use different therapeutic approaches, including Humanistic, CBT and CFT to fit your needs.
I currently mostly work online, via Zoom. However, I offer face-to-face counselling in the client's home. I am currently undertaking further training in telephone counselling and I intend to offer face-to-face counselling in a private property in the near future. I also intend to extend my service to include Walk and Talk therapy.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
