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 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.
