About me

Are you finding life hard? Perhaps feeling isolated, lonely or overwhelmed by relationships, family or friendship difficulties? Maybe you find yourself seeking comfort in food, alcohol or drugs? Or, you find yourself excessively working, online shopping or using social media, etc? Do any of these things sound familiar? If so, and you are new to counselling or psychotherapy, I know how nervous you are probably feeling.

How counselling and psychotherapy can help

I am here to support you and depending on your hopes and needs, we can work together over a brief period or for however long you require.

Whatever your focus, therapy can help;

  • Reduce anxiety
  • Reduce depression
  • Address difficult family issues
  • Cultivate better personal relationships
  • Reduce low self-esteem
  • Improve your confidence and assertiveness.

Online offering & Locations

I offer sessions via Zoom,  Microsoft Team (or via WhatsApp/telephone if preferable). Further details upon request.

As and when we are both happy to meet in person, there is the option for face-to-face counselling and psychotherapy sessions. Please enquire.

What to expect in the first session

I offer all prospective clients a free 30 minute telephone consultation to discuss how I may be of service to you. We can discuss our mutual availability during this call to arrange an initial 1 hour session.

This initial session is an opportunity to see how we can work together, your expectations and desired outcomes from therapy and any questions you may have for me. Offering you a safe online place to be seen and heard is my top priority.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
