I offer a safe, confidential space for individuals to explore any part of their life that is causing distress and stopping them from reaching their full potential. I am currently working as a young persons counsellor but have experience counselling people of all ages.
I believe that you are the expert on what is going on for you, maybe you want to explore the way you are thinking or feeling, or experiencing a problem or issue that you are keen to resolve.
You may choose to speak to a counsellor because you feel that you cannot speak to your friends or family about personal issues, I provide therapy and support for a wide range of problems including anger, anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss and grief. Together we can identify core problems by exploring your thoughts and feelings surrounding difficult issues and work out ways to manage your current feelings as well as helping you to find better ways or skills to manage problems in the future.
If you would like to discuss your requirements or find out more about counselling you are very welcome to call me in confidence on 07584036348 and leave me a message or alternatively you can email me as above.

I have previously counselled on a voluntary basis for 'Place 2 Be' and 'Eye to Eye' as a young persons counsellor working with clients age 5 to 25 years old. My varied experience has given me access to a broad spectrum of clients, with a range of mental health and life event issues.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). As such I am committed to adhering to the (BACP) ethical framework (www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework).
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.
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.
