Sometimes we all need a safe, quiet space to be heard so that we can start to consider what's going on, where we are at and how things might be different, less challenging, stressful and overwhelming.
Trained as a Relationship and Children and Young People's Counsellor I use what is called a Relationship, Integrative approach in my work. This considers how we see ourselves and others in the world, and how our values, beliefs, thoughts and feelings influence our interactions and behaviours with others, particularly those who we care about.
In using this approach we can explore where some of your challenges have arisen from and consider strategies to create positive change for you, your relationships and sense of wellbeing throughout our lifespan whether adolescent peer and parental relationships and stressors, as a couple or our relationship with ourselves.
I have worked with individuals and couples in private practise and charities, as well as with children and families for over 20 years within the NHS.

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.
