We all have mental health, just like physical health and counselling can offer a space to nurture a healthier mind space. I have experience working with people of all ages from young people in a school setting, to vulnerable adults struggling with addiction.
You will be at the very centre of our work and I aim to offer a warm, nonjudgemental, professional place in which to work.I have experience of working with addiction, anxiety, depression, disordered eating, work performance issues and relationship challenges.
I am trained integratively, which means I can offer a variety of therapeutic approaches (including Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Psychotherapeutic Therapy).
I feel passionately finding the right therapist is really important, so I offer a free consultation session for you and I to explore if we are a good fit for each other. After initial contact by email or phone we can meet and discuss what areas of of your life you are struggling with, this enables you to contact other counsellors too and chose someone who feels right for you.. If you decide to work with me we will then find a weekly slot to begin working together.

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.
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
I believe its really important to feel comfortable with your therapist, therefore I offer a free consultation where we can explore whether we are a good fit for each other. My hourly charge is then £50 an hour.
