Maybe you are feeling anxious, unhappy, bewildered and unsure where to turn. I offer you the opportunity, through counselling, to explore your worries and concerns to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and your feelings.This in turn can enable you to feel in a more self-confident and resilient place in your life. It can make all the difference in how you approach lifes 'ups' and 'downs', seeing the choices you have and enabling you to be more decisive.
I understand that life can feel difficult and challenging at times, perhaps through life circumstances, complicated relationships with others, difficulties at work or home, or from grief and loss. I will offer you a caring, non-judgemental, respectful and honest relationship where I can give you the time and space to be heard and understood and through this connection the opportunity to change.
Please call or email me to have a free 15 minute telephone consultation where I can explain further about the counselling which I offer. Then if we both feel that it is something you would like to continue with we can arrange our first session together. Usually the sessions will then continue each week on the same day and at the same time.

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).
