About me

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed with life's stress and not sure where to turn?

No matter what your age or situation, talking things through confidentially can bring some clarity to your thoughts. Having the opportunity to off-load anxieties, complicated feelings, or worries to someone who isn't family, but who does have the experience and sensitivity to listen to you, can help you explore a different, more positive future and offer new ways to cope.

If problems from the past continue to overshadow you or more recent changes such as bereavement, relationship difficulties or illness have surfaced, then my non-judgemental space is here for you.

Dark, sometimes suicidal thoughts can feel overwhelming, and it's hard to find someone who you can trust to talk to. You don't want to burden anyone else. Counselling can make a difference. I can listen and hear those emotional struggles.

I am also experienced in supporting teenagers and young adults.

Having worked within a children's charity and as part of a hospice family support team, I’m conscious that everyone copes differently. A ‘talking therapy’ simply isn’t suited to everyone. For this reason, I also offer creative and play therapies, rewarding for children and adults alike. Whether you choose a one-off session or several appointments, what’s best for you is at the heart of my service.

I can offer flexible appointment times, including evenings.

Local home visits can be considered where there is a need.

DBS checked and fully insured.

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.
