About me

Whether you have recently faced difficulties in your life, challenges in your relationships or feeling held back from something in your past, I can support you, help you feel better and walk with you through your healing process.

Through our work together, I will help you gain a better understanding of yourself & your experiences, build confidence & self-esteem, be more assertive, build stronger relationships & live the life you want.

Maybe you have always been the strong one and find it hard to let others know how you are really feeling. You may have lived your life putting others first and have forgotten about your own needs along the way. This may have left you feeling confused and resentful at times in your friendships and relationships.

Maybe you would like to put yourself first sometimes but are worried about what others will think of you. Maybe you find it hard to be yourself around others and have been wearing a mask for so long that you've forgotten who you really are and what you want out of life.

Maybe you would like things to change but are not sure how.

You have already taken the first step in helping yourself by seeking the support of a Counsellor.

Choosing a Counsellor can feeling daunting and knowing which one is right for you may feel confusing.

Why not book a free 15 min telephone consultation with me to discuss your counselling needs and I can answer any questions you may have.

Please call or email to book your consultation. I aim to get back to you within 24hrs, if I am unable to reply/answer then.

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

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.
