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.

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.

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).
