Do you feel anxious, depressed or confused about your life?
You are not alone, most of us at some time in our lives will feel a sense of unease or dis-ease. At times like this it can help to connect with someone other than family or friends where you will have time and space to be free to talk and explore whatever you need to. Maybe it's your time to connect to you.
External influences or traumatic experiences can shake our very core of our being, which can leave us feeling anxious, confused and can drain our energy, when this happens we may tend to follow others, due to loss of our sense of self
we live in such an externally focused world. A screen world, televisions, computers, phones that our sense of self eludes us. We remain focused on out there instead of searching within.
I believe in and work therapeutically with the Humanistic approach to Counselling by looking at a person as a Whole, exploring relationships with self, mind, body, emotion, behaviour and Spirituality
I can provide a safe, calm, non-judgemental environment helping you to work through and unravel any issues that may be hindering you to live your life that is right for you

Training, qualifications & experience
Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
FdSc in Humanistic Counselling
Access to Counselling Diploma
My previous experience include working for Homestart where families encounter change and challenges that occur within the family unit, juggling work, time, relationships and sometimes a sense of isolation. I also worked for Family Focus, a charity supporting mothers with children under five that for different reasons were going through challenges that parenthood can bring.
I have experience working with Teenagers that for so many different reasons were taken out of the school system and put onto the STEPS Programme (Social Training Education Programme Surrey) I worked at the Vine, which is for homeless and vulnerable adults, for 4 years.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer an initial consultation for £25 for 50 minutes which will give us the opportunity to meet each other and see if I am the right person for you to fulfil you needs.
I charge £45 per session going forward.
I also offer some concession rates for students and clients on low income.
I offer daytime appointments, plus some evening and Saturdays depending on availability
I can offer both short and long term Therapy.
I work therapeutically with respect to your unlimited uniqueness. Experience has taught me that being given a Label can be both empowering and disempowering
For example, if you have been diagnosed with ADHD or Dyslexia I will work with your individual experiences to address your needs within a Label that groups people together.
