About me

It is common for us to experience life as overwhelming at times. Counselling can help you navigate these difficult times and talk to someone who is professionally trained and able to help.

How Counselling Can Help

Within the safe space we create together, you can talk to me openly and begin to explore the issues you are struggling with and begin to move forwards with a better understanding and clearer mind.  I offer you a personalised approach, specific to you, which is confidential, non-judgemental, accepting and welcoming.

I believe that none of us are easily defined; that we are complex beings and don’t necessary fit into easily defined roles. The counselling I offer respects difference and I commit to reflecting this diversity through the inclusive approach I adopt.  Therefore, whatever sexuality, gender or relationship style you identify with, you will be made to feel welcome and accepted.  

We are all in multiple relationships at any one time and counselling can help you navigate the difficulties they can bring.  

You may find that you repeatedly find yourself in similar situations with the people in your life, frustrated at not seeming to understand why. Or perhaps, the same disagreements may keep cropping up in your relationships and despite your best efforts they re-emerge with vengeance again and again. Counselling can help you understand why this is happening and give you the tools to break unhelpful patterns and create the opportunity for more harmony within your relationships.

My Approach

The benefit of my integrative approach means that I am able to make use of the wide range of different skills I have gathered during my professional life.  For example, it may be useful to consider the influence of your past experiences and think about the reasons you respond to certain situations the way you do.  Exploring the effect of these influences in conjunction with thinking about practical strategies you may wish to try to create change, will enable you to be better able to move forward feeling positive.

Member organisations

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.
