If you are reading this then you might be feeling sad, stressed or anxious. We all go through challenging times in our lives when things can seem very difficult. I offer a safe, supportive and honest space where we can explore your individual challenges. My aim is to help you not only resolve conflicts and issues but to also be able to express your unique individuality and potential.
"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." CG Jung
The therapeutic process is a journey not just of overcoming current issues but of learning to live the life we are meant to live. As well as understanding past traumas and present difficulties, we will also work together to discover what adds purpose and meaning to your life.
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor with several years of experience and working with a range of clients.
I offer one hour weekly sessions on either short term or open ended basis.
I am an Individual member of the UKCP and abide by its code of ethics.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. 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
Making the first contact can feel like the hardest part of this process. Please contact me by phone or email to set up an initial one hour appointment where we can determine what you need and how we can work together.
I charge £60 for one to one sessions. We would aim to meet weekly at a regular time and place.
I offer reduced rates for students.
