My hope is to give access to many who often feel counselling is out of reach and currently unavailable to them. As a qualified and experienced counsellor I work from an integrative approach using different approaches, to work collaboratively with you. I listen unconditionally with empathy in regard to the issues which bring you to counselling at this time in your life.
Areas of experience are;
Anxiety Addictions Bullying Life changes through loss including bereavement Coercive relationships Confidence/self esteem Depression Family situations Identity Relationship problems Self-harm Stress Childhood issues and Work related problems.
My aim is to create a non-judgmental and confidential environment where you are enabled to gain an improved understanding of yourself towards positive and informed choices. Through the counselling process and working relationship, you the client, become enabled to discover, strengthen or establish your resources for change and hoped for outcomes. As counsellor, I offer to look with you at the future, from the present time, in respect of the past. Counselling is based on listening, providing time for you to concentrate at the work at your pace.
The counselling space provided is a warm, comfortable and spacious room in which you are able to explore your feelings, behaviours and thoughts towards positive change. Each session is in respect of your own, unique story and issues you bring.

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.
