All of us at times can find we are struggling or feeling unhappy ……with ourselves, others or a specific situation …..and are wanting or needing things to change. And whether it is something that is going on now or is rooted in the past and early experiences, counselling and therapy can help.
I have over twenty years experience working with individuals and couples. My method of working is primarily psychodynamic, which means exploring the past to make sense of present feelings and behaviour but I also draw from a range of therapeutic approaches that will best suit you and your specific needs.
Counselling and therapy can be life changing and an important aspect of my work is in providing a genuinely warm and supportive space where we can confidentially explore the difficult and sometimes painful issues that are affecting your everyday life .......with the aim for both of us being to enlighten and empower you so that you can make the changes you want to make to go forward with confidence.
I work with many kinds of difficulties, with particular interest in:
- relationships and family issues
- childhood issues
- building self-esteem and confidence
- post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS / ME)
- loss and bereavement
- personal change and growth
- living with someone with a personality disorder

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.
