What I can help with
I offer counselling to adults, couples and young people in a safe and confidential manner. This can be in either my meeting room or in your own home, wherever you feel most comfortable . This will give you a safe space in which you can share any issues that may be impacting on your personal and/or your professional life.
We will work together to understand what you can do to address your worries and anxieties to enable you to get to where you want or need to be.
As an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor I use a variety of techniques combining different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit your personal needs.
Person Centered Counselling allows us to work together specifically dealing with whatever you are comfortable with sharing. This kind of therapy addresses general anxieties, dissatisfaction with life, difficulties coming to term with painful past events, relationship difficulties, bereavement or illnesses.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy helps change the way you think and behave, focussing on the "here and now". This is helpful for; anxiety, anger issues, depression, stress and phobias.
Psychodynamic Counselling aims to help bring to the surface your true feelings. Helpful for, dealing with problems from the past.
I believe that the counselling relationship is based on trust and understanding.
I look forward to hearing from you. I am able to offer appointments day time or evenings.

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.
