A very warm welcome to my page. You may be considering seeking some support with the challenges you have in your life at the moment, and my hope is that I can be help you. I know it can seem quite a daunting step, but I will strive to support you through this process.
I know life can become chaotic and we can feel out of control trying to hold everything together for a variety of reasons. Leading lives where we are trying to be so many things at once, and trying to perfect them all, can become overwhelming. We can feel isolated and lonely believing no-one understands us when all we really crave is a space to be heard, and really listened to. I can provide that space and be with you every step of the way as you explore your challenges. We can work together to tap into the tools you naturally have available to manage and cope with life and situations that arise.
I do this by offering a client-centred approach based on respect, empathy and honesty. I will support you in exploring your reasons for seeking therapy, within a non-judgemental environment. By creating a safe, open and genuine relationship with you, we can together find ways to deal with the difficulties you are experiencing. In doing so this can help you develop the tools to find clarity and become more confident, empowered and self-fulfilled when dealing with life's challenges.

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.
