Mostly people come to counselling because they are experiencing dissatisfaction in their life or emotional pain of some kind, and are finding it difficult to solve this on their own. As a trained counsellor, I can provide a perspective which sheds new light on these issues, clarifying them and empowering you to find solutions.
I offer a safe and confidential space for you to be as vulnerable and open as you need to be without fear of judgment, and to share everything that's important to you including your joys and achievements. The ideal outcome is that you develop a strong sense of self that you can always rely on. This will enable you to move into a more balanced, happy and effective life, achieving your full potential.
We will work in a variety of ways depending on your needs - these can include guided imagery, drawing, dream work, constellation, sand trays or simply listening, allowing you to be fully seen, heard and accepted. These are just some of the tools which we can use to expand your awareness about yourself and the world around you, and to help you get in touch with your inner strengths and wisdom so that you can make a positive change in your life.

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.
