About me

People come to counselling for many differing reasons. You may have recently experienced a crisis in your life, such as bereavement, loss of a relationship, trauma or illness. Or perhaps you are less clear about why you are finding it hard to cope, you might be feeling anxious, stressed or experiencing unpredictable emotional swings but not be sure about why this is happening.

Talking to someone outside of your family and friends, in confidence and without judgement, can help to bring clarity and awareness and begin to assist you in identifying how your beliefs, thinking patterns and behaviour may be contributing to your state of mind. Counselling can also help you to reflect on how your previous experiences may be informing your current situation. Through counselling, you may gain a new perspective on how you are living your life and with this awareness develop confidence to move forward with greater positivity and confidence.

I believe that we all have the capability within us to change direction and to overcome problems but sometimes we need support and a helping hand to enable us to recognise our potential and to find new ways of being.

I am an experienced therapist who offers a warm, confidential and safe environment for you to explore what is troubling you. Although counselling is not about curing or fixing a person, it is a space that you can talk, be heard and equip yourself to move towards a more fulfilling life.

I work within an integrative approach – This means that our work together will be a blend of varying theoretical thinking to meet your individual needs. It is my belief that we have the capability, drawing on our innate resources to find our own way of being. As your therapist I will be a part of the process to guide, support and ensure that you are able to find the answers you are looking for. I aim to address both the causes and the symptoms of emotional and psychological difficulties.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
