I am an integrative and creative counsellor specialised in working with children and young people.
My practice is largely informed by CBT and Systemic Therapy (Family Therapy) as I believe that the environment we live in, the relationships we have, and the experiences we have lived hugely affect who we are today.
As we all know life can be tough at times and we may feel distressed or have problems that may be hard to talk about with people close to us.
Counselling is a place where you can come and talk about all these things and much more.
I offer tailored short-term and solution-focused interventions normally between 6 and 12 sessions according to the issues presented. Art and play therapy are utilised when working face to face with children and young people.
Before getting involved with counselling it is important for you to know that :
- You won’t be blamed or judged despite what the problem is
- You won’t be told what to do
- You will be heard carefully
- You will be helped to sort things out in a way that suits you
- You will be given the time and space you need
For more information feel free to book an initial consultation with no obligation to start ongoing counselling.

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).
