Counselling can provide you with a safe and confidential place where together we can look at any issues that are troubling you. My training in psychodynamic counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) enable me to provide you with an opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings that you may find too difficult or confusing to discuss with family and friends and work towards living a more fulfilling life.
I have experience of helping clients with a wide range of difficulties including, anxiety, depression, anger management, abuse and self esteem issues.
I also provide parenting support to parents supporting a child or young person facing challenges in their emotional wellbeing (e.g. anxiety, behavioural issues, anger, low mood).

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.
