Do you want clarity, to feel at ease, perhaps even be at peace with yourself, perhaps you struggle with relationships or expectations and pressures. Counselling and psychotherapy can offer an opportunity to learn about who you are, what makes you tick, how you react to others.
Together we can talk without pressure or judgment, my experience will help find a way to clarify your situation and develop a sense of self.
By offering empathy and understanding compassion is created, providing opportunity to develop self-worth and a trust in your own gut feeling.
Do you have concerns about;
Struggles with losing, gaining or maintaining weight
Eating disorders, behaviour around food, obesity, physical and emotional health can also be intertwined, if this is an issue for you I can offer eating disorder counselling therapy. This is a more directive, holistic approach based around motivation, engagement and change. I hold the NCFED Master Practitioner in eating disorders and obesity award, keeping myself up to date through further training and contact with eating disorder professionals. As a competitive athlete and qualified personal trainer I also have an understanding of the complex issues faced in performance based exercise, sport and training.

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.
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).
