I am passionate about offering therapeutic support to anyone who finds themselves feeling stuck, confused, conflicted, whereby extra support feels helpful. We all deserve the opportunity for additional support - even more so in the tricky times we find ourselves in.
I work from a Person-Centred perspective, which means I aim to work 'with' clients in a way that feels comfortable and beneficial to them and at their pace - offering a creative, authentic and personable approach.
Person-Centred therapy is non-judgemental and provides people with a safe, trusting and compassionate space to explore difficulties and any options that might be available, alongside gaining a better understanding of themselves.
This way of working does not limit what issues can be explored and worked with - to date I have worked with the difficulties listed below and more. If I felt you would benefit beyond my scope of knowledge, such as a more specialised service this would be communicated.
Feel free to provide a brief overview with your enquiry and we can arrange a FREE 15minute Contact Call.
My first session:
Taking that first step in seeking help can be hard for many (and you're now doing it!) - often clients feel less daunted having had the opportunity to 'break the ice' and have their initial concerns dispelled and questions answered.
A big part of the effectiveness of counselling is the relationship between the client and counsellor, so I believe that by offering a reduced rate for initial sessions, allows people to get a feel of how we would work together and gain insight to me as a counsellor.
Therefore the first session would exploratory and without further commitment. It would involve a conversation around your reasons for getting in touch, what you might like to gain from counselling, plus the opportunity of getting to know each other a little. This will help both of us decide if and how we want to work together.
Initial sessions are charged at a lower rate of £38.00.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
