Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed and you are looking to talk to someone who is outside of your situation and non-judgemental? I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist offering a safe, confidential space where we can explore what is troubling you together.
I will listen to you without judgement and encourage you to reflect on your thoughts and feelings, offering a unique opportunity to discover more about yourself and find the strength within yourself to move towards change.
After making contact on the phone or by email to arrange an appointment, our first session will serve as an assessment. During this time we can look at the problems or struggles that have brought you to therapy, what you hope to achieve through our work together and whether my way of working feels right for you.
I am currently offering sessions via video link and on the telephone.
Counselling sessions take place at the same time weekly, and each session lasts for 50 minutes.

Registered member of the BACP
I have experience working with many different problems including anxiety, depression, stress and identity issues within the NHS and with older adults in a charity setting.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
