Thank you for visiting my profile. If you find yourself experiencing difficulties with relationships, family dynamics, anxiety and stress, these issues can sometimes be hard to face alone, but you don't have to. I can help you to explore your thoughts and feelings and help you to build strategies and coping techniques while also addressing the underlying, long term reasons you may be struggling. This can allow you to not only understand the root cause of your difficulty but also help you to learn new, more helpful ways of moving forwards.

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.
