I understand that it takes courage to make that first step and contact a counsellor for help. I will do my best to help you along the journey to feeling better. I can offer you a safe, confidential space whilst we explore your difficulties and find solutions that work for you. CBT counselling is a non-judgemental, conversation based therapy that equips individuals with a more positive outlook and changes any self-defeating patterns or thought processes. A heightened self-awareness and a renewed feeling of being 'in control' produces significant and life lasting results for you and those around you. As a registered professional counsellor with both BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and also a member of BABCP (British Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapists), I work within their ethical framework for good practice and specialise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I offer both short and long term counselling and I can support you as you work through your difficulties and develop coping strategies. I am skilled in working with a range of issues, please see the extensive list below.

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.
