Do you sense that life sometimes feels overwhelming, exhausting? When was the last time you spent a few moments to pause, step back and check-in with how you really feel? We tend to be very aware of checking our blood pressure, dental health, weight etc. Where do you place the importance of your mental and emotional well-being?
I am an experienced and qualified registered Person-Centered Counsellor. I work within the NHS Primary Care team for community well-being in mental health.
I have a passionate interest in Expressive Art therapy which can be powerful when working with difficult emotions. I offer a confidential counselling service within a safe peaceful environment of my summer house working with clients who may be experiencing loss, stress bereavement, depression, anxiety and relationship difficulties.
If you feel you are struggling to cope with strong difficult emotions or trying to make sense of your life and long for some clarity then counselling may be helpful for you.

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.
