Anxiety? Depression? Bereavement? Come and talk...
Counselling and therapy can help you to address behaviour that no longer works for you. It can be a positive step towards change, especially if you are facing difficulties like anxiety, depression, relationship issues, divorce/separation, bereavement or work-related stress. I can offer you a down-to-earth and empathic working relationship as we work on your issues together.
During our initial consultation we can discuss what you would like to focus on. There may be a specific concern or change you are facing that you would like some help with through short-term counselling, or you may want to work over a longer period to tackle deeper-rooted difficulties. Working from a humanistic perspective, I support clients to develop their self-awareness and their sense of well-being so they can start living the life they want.
I have worked with clients on the following issues: depression; anxiety; low self-esteem; sexuality; family dynamics; changing your relationship with yourself and others; identity and belonging; emotional and sexual abuse; managing and breaking habits; learning a more adult way of life; unresolved grief; unblocking creativity; and self-motivation.
Training, qualifications & experience

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
