I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor and I will offer you a safe and confidential space where we can explore your thoughts and feelings. I will accept you exactly how you are and I will listen to you without any judgment being made about you. I will work with you through the counselling process to allow you to understand your thoughts and feelings and to try and find an easier way for you to manage them, or in some cases overcome them.
I have experience of working with clients who are experiencing a range of issues in their life. I have also worked in a domestic abuse setting, working with clients who have experienced some form of abuse within their relationships. The clients I have worked with often attend counselling for issues such as; Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, Low self-esteem, Low self-confidence, Anger issues, Trauma etc.
I continue my professional development and attend Supervision on a monthly basis which allows me to gain feedback and explore issues I am working on with clients. This is done in a very confidential way and the client always remains anonymous.
Getting started with Counselling
Please e-mail me to book in an assessment. The assessment will be to inform me of what you would like to get out of Counselling and how we will work together. After the assessment, and if you would still like to go ahead with Counselling, I will book you in for an appointment. These sessions will be up to 50 minutes long and on a weekly basis, on the same day and at the same time each week.

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.
