About me

Thinking of coming to counselling is a difficult decision. A courageous one too.

Taking this step is an act of kindness to yourself and your loved ones. I offer you a safe space to discuss some of the challenging issues you are struggling with. 

I work with adults that feel overwhelmed by the challenges they are facing and are ready to make a positive change in their life. 

We meet weekly at a set time, to give you the space and time to think about what is most important to you.

I empower you to find inner strength and together, work to resolve difficult issues in a constructive way so you can move forwards, towards a more fulfilling life. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a warm, caring and empathetic Psychotherapist, supporting adults dealing with anxiety, unresolved losses, bereavement, relationship issues, low self esteem and life changes. 

There are many facets to talking therapies, I incorporate different modalities into my practice, as each client is a unique individual and has particular needs they would like to address.

My training is psychodynamic therapy, which will give you a depth and understanding of why certain issues are challenging in your life right now. We will explore some of the issues your are experiencing and help support you to constructive changes in your life. 

In addition, I am trained to work with bereaved clients and terminally ill patients. Which adds an extra dimension to the care I offer. 

I will gently support you through the process of therapy in a calm and compassionate manner.

Together, we explore issues with a sensitive and healthy approach, enabling you to find the inner strength to live the life you aspire to.

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.
