To feel the grips of depression and anxiety, to feel lost and isolated can be very frightening, confusing and dis-empowering. To visit the places that scare us takes courage but I believe that this is the first step to creating a more positive and constructive way of being. It is my belief and experience that counselling can effectively illuminate the path to wellbeing and personal empowerment, so therefore, be no longer dictated by our outdated beliefs, fears, past mistakes or experiences. Getting to truly know yourself I believe is one of the most important rewarding journeys you will ever take.
I am a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I have extensive experience working in a number of settings including an NHS brief intervention service, an alcohol and substance misuse organisation and a domestic violence support centre. I am also a qualified EFT Practitioner.
I have a Certificate and Diploma in Counselling and a Post Graduate Certificate and Diploma in Integrated Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work from an integrative approach using a person centred core model offering the core conditions, and I fluidly utilise other techniques from other schools of therapy depending on your individual needs and preferences. It is my experience that no one size fits all; we are all as individual as our finger prints.
If you feel I am the right therapist for you or if you have any questions please give me a call...and a huge well done for taking the first step!

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.

I am a member of the BACP (please feel free to check the BACP website) and work within the BACP ethical guidelines. My dominant approach is person centred and I display the core conditions throughout my practice.
I integrate techniques from various therapy models and I have found the benefits of extending the Person Centred approach to be quick and affective dependant on individual needs.
