Offering one to one counselling, I aim to provide a supportive, non-judgemental, confidential space where you can feel safe to explore and understand what it is that is causing you to feel this way.
In working with you, my focus is to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, where you will find an increasing awareness of your own strength and resource, helping to support you in the here and now, as well as going forward into the future.
If you would like to get started with counselling, please contact me securely and discreetly via email, text or phone, to discuss setting up an initial consultation.
Within this first session we'll explore you, your reasons for considering counselling and what you aim to gain from our work together.
We'll also explore more about my practice and how I am able support you as your therapist.
Going forward, if there is a mutual feeling that we can work together, we'll set up a second session, with a view to setting up regular meetings (generally on a weekly basis).

I attend regular supervision and am committed to regular Continual Professional Development (CPD).
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.

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).
