This is your journey..
Counselling can help you through difficult periods of your life and as life does not come with a guide book, we can often find ourselves overwhelmed, distressed and unable to cope.
My counselling practise is offered to you through a joint venture with my counselling colleague where we aim to provide you as a client, a bespoke service.
Here at A LITTLE ROOM OF THERAPY , our reflective and confidential practice provides an empathic, understanding and non-judgemental space where both men and women can explore through our therapeutic services, ways to bring meaning, understanding and awareness into their lives.
By gentle exploration we work to support your journey through therapy, to make sense, find meaning and to encourage ways to understand and move you forward through your traumas and difficulties.
Our counselling service provides professionally qualified interventions that deal with many problems including relational issues, anxiety, relationship and family issues. depression, phobias, separation and divorce, abuse, panic disorders, bereavement, redundancy, low self-esteem and child related issues. These are just a few of the areas that we are experienced in and is not an exhaustive list.

I am a fully qualified counsellor with a person-centred psychodynamic background. I work in a pluralistic way bringing a variety of counselling approaches together that are best suited to the individual client.
My experience spans over many years and I have worked within voluntary, Public Health and charity settings.
Along with my Counselling Partner, I am excited to offer EFT & Matrix Imprinting. Often referred to as "Psychological acupressure", the technique works by releasing blockages within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity and discomfort. These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and an inability to live life harmoniously. Resulting symptoms are either emotional and/ or physical and include lack of confidence and self esteem, feeling stuck anxious or depressed, or the emergence of compulsive and addictive behaviours. It is also now finally widely accepted that emotional disharmony is a key factor in physical symptoms and dis-ease and for this reason these techniques are being extensively used on physical issues, including chronic illness with often astounding results. As such these techniques are being accepted more and more in medical and psychiatric circles as well as in the range of psychotherapies and healing disciplines. (source: The Energy Therapy Centre).
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.
