About me

Are you struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, low mood, overwhelming or intrusive thoughts?

Maybe you have been through a stressful situation in your life that has left you feeling drained, deflated or lost. Or maybe you have experienced a relationship breakdown or bereavement, and are finding it hard to cope with the overwhelming emotions, thoughts and feelings you are experiencing. 

You may be feeling stuck and unable to move forward. You may want things to change but are not sure how they will. 

It can be hard to deal with difficult situations, feelings or experiences alone and sometimes you may need a little support to get through it.

Counselling offers you a safe, confidential space to discuss the the difficulties you are experiencing without feeling judged. I will listen and support you and work together with you to help you feel better, build self-esteem and confidence and find new ways of coping and managing difficult feelings. 

Please call or email for more information about counselling with me or to book an appointment. I aim to get back to you within 24hrs.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
