About me

I am a qualified integrative counselling professional, offering a free 20-minute introductory session for us to meet and see how counselling feels for you.

Currently I am only offering virtual sessions from multiple secure platforms and by telephone. This is due to Covid. If you are finding this unusual time frustrating, stressful or scary and want some support, contact me.

I am registered with the British Association of counselling and psychotherapy (MBACP) working within their ethical framework. I work in a humanistic way providing a warm, trusting and confidential space to explore together what is going on for you and any difficult issues you are facing.

People seek counselling for a large range of issues big and small as life can be challenging at all stages and ages, with this in mind feeling heard and understood can help you to work out the way forward often enabling change.

Throughout my time counselling I have helped clients explore a broad range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-worth, grief, and abuse – aiming to allow growth and change or accept what can not be changed and process this all within a safe trusting environment.

Sessions last for 50 minutes, in this time you can bring your true feelings and thoughts without judgement knowing it’s an empathic space just for you, for as long as you feel you need it.

Day, Evening and weekend sessions available

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.
