About me

Face to face appointments now available with social distancing measures in place.

Online counselling and walk and talk therapy also available.

You may be going through a difficult time or facing something that is hard to cope with in your life. You may be feeling worried, scared, empty, sad or angry and feel unable to control your emotions. You may feel alone in your problems and not sure where to turn. You are not alone. I can support you and work together with you to help you feel better, manage your feelings and find a way forward.

I can help you through difficulties you may be facing in your life such as life transitions, relationship difficulties, breakdown or divorce. Parenting and Pregnancy struggles. Work pressure or loss of job. Exam stress, difficulty making decisions or loss of direction and motivation. Chronic pain, invisible conditions and disability including, Fibromyalgia, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and POTS. Bereavement, past trauma and abuse. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-harm, eating disorders and substance abuse.

I offer you a warm, confidential, safe space where you can talk freely about what you are going through. To feel heard, understood and accepted as you are. I will support you in a non-jugemental way to make sense of what you are experiencing and work with you to find out what is causing these feelings and help you take back control of your life. Through our work together, I will support you to build a more trusting and compassionate relationship with yourself, build self-esteem, find new ways of coping, make long lasting changes and start moving forward with your life.

If you would like to book a session with me or have any questions, please get in touch by phone or email.

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.

Accessibility

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.
