You've made the first step on your counselling journey
Counselling offers a non judgemental, confidential and safe space to think and talk about anything which you may feel confusing, overwhelming or painful. It is a therapeutic relationship which encourages you to explore your feelings, together with someone who is empathic, impartial and trained to listen.
I will not judge, criticise or tell you what to do but I will help you to explore your feelings, thoughts and personal experiences to help you move forward.
It is not always easy to talk about what may be happening for you, or to express or even get in touch with your feelings, the therapeutic space will help you work through these difficult times by getting in touch with your own inner resources and strength, enabling you to manage life more effectively and facilitate your own personal change, growth and healing.
I am a fully qualified counsellor working one to one with adults based in Burton on Trent.
I am a registered member of The British Association for counselling and psychotherapy (BACP), I am bound by their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, ensuring the work is safe and confidential.

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).
