I offer a safe and calm space for you to talk about your difficulties where you will be listened to with acceptance and kindness. Just to feel heard and to be able to express whatever is going on for you can be a great relief from the start. Help in exploring underlying issues with an open mind enable a truer understanding of yourself and in turn can lead to feeling more fulfilled and in control of your life,
You are welcome to take up either short term (6-12 weeks) or long term therapy, depending on what you would like to achieve. We would agree the same 50 minute appointment time each week.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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

Why Couples Counselling?
Maybe you're in a relationship that has been good, but now things have changed and you are experiencing problems or feel in crisis. Maybe you don't want to give up on the relationship but you can't see the wood for the trees? Perhaps you're uncertain about going your separate ways.
I offer couples counselling to help you gain perspective and clarity on difficult issues that may feel overwhelming or gridlocked, so you can move forward in your life.
Couples come for different reasons, such as to make a difficult decision, to give the relationship a chance and work through issues, or to get support in realising you want to go your separate ways. Whatever your reasons, I am very respectful of your needs.
I come from a belief that relationships hold much potential for personal growth and mutual fulfilment. In helping couples understand deeper underlying issues behind relationship problems and taking steps to relate differently, I believe a deeper connection and love between couples is possible.
How long do we need to come for?
This depends on where you are in your relationship now and where you would like to get to.
I offer short term couples counselling for between 6-8 weeks of ongoing weekly sessions at £80 per session. You are also welcome to come for longer term counselling to go further and to deepen the process.
