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.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
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.

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.
