I provide a confidential non- judgemental service where I offer the time and space for you to explore your issues.
We all feel stressed, anxious or low at times. Most of the time we cope but sometimes we can become overwhelmed and feel that everything in life is on top of us, and we can find it hard to cope. At times like this it’s best to get the right kind of help when you need it.
My aim is to support you and help you to overcome and cope with difficult periods in you life, and especially when you may be experiencing a very emotional and low point in your life.
Some areas that I can help with are :
- Domestic violence
- Physical,sexual and emotional abuse
- Cross cultural issues
- Problems at work
- Coping with medical conditions
- Loss of meaning of life
- Personal Development
- Traumatic birth
- Ectopic Pregnancy
I also offer Person centred supervision to qualified counsellors and psychotherapists.

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.
