How I work - Once you have made the massive step to reach out, we will talk on the phone to arrange the first face to face/online meeting which will be an assessment. The assessment is where we will discuss how we can work together to improve your wellbeing, and set out a small plan that we will continue to work on throughout our time together.
Talking therapy is a two-way process whereby client and therapist both communicate as best they can to uncover the crux of each issue that arises. Therapy can be a difficult and challenging process. With an open and honest approach, I see clients able to understand themselves and their lives better after understanding how to communicate; this process begins in the therapy room and is carried through to their wider circles. Without understanding, there can be no progress. It is my honour to hear a client speak about what matters to them most and to help clients reach their goals.
It is key in my practice to harness critical thinking. This in no way means that I will think critically of any client, but I will work with clients to better understand their thought process and to help interpret their inner world so that they, in turn, can better understand themselves and their lives, in order to make changes that will help them feel good.
Within therapy, I help clients to look at what it is that they need to feel proud and be happy in their own skin, therefore, reaching their potential at a meaningful and content life. This is done with understanding, openness and without judgement.

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.
