A very warm welcome to you.
I understand that life can sometimes feel out of our depth and it can leave us not knowing where to turn.
Seeking support can feel like a daunting experience but I can assure you that there will be no expectation of you. I will ensure to make you feel at ease and you will be met without judgement and accepted for you, just as you are.
Counselling can help with a multitude of problems, such as, depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, childhood experiences, eating disorders, relationship issues, patterns of behaviour, addictions and more.
I’m qualified in person-centred counselling, which means I will be led by you, at your own pace. We can explore your world at a pace which is comfortable for you. Alongside person-centred therapy, I have studied other modalities so can integrate these into the work, if I feel it would support you. This means that I can work in whichever way is needed to cater to your individual needs.
I offer a safe, empathic, confidential, and non-judgemental space for you to talk about things that are troubling you. I believe that with the right conditions in place, everybody has the ability to change their world for the better.
Some of the issues I’ve covered in previous work are rape, abuse, drug and alcohol addiction, self-worth, confidence issues, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, sex addiction, attachment complexities, relationship difficulties, grief and bereavement and suicidal Ideation.
I offer face to face, zoom and telephone counselling.
Each of our therapeutic sessions will last for 50 minutes.
Please get in touch with me via telephone, email or text to discuss booking in for your free no obligation introductory session, which will last around 30 minutes. During this session we can discuss what you would like to gain from counselling and what counselling will entail. It is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have. If you are happy to continue after this initial session then we can arrange your sessions, which is normally on a weekly basis.
I understand how difficult it can be to reach out, the first step is always the hardest... but here you are.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
