Difficult emotions don't go away just because they are not acknowledged. Often they get pushed down and you try to carry on as normal. Until one day you realise you are not living the way you want to. Therapy offers a safe, confidential, caring space for you to make sense of your experiences and feelings.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and a member of the BACP. I have over four years experience and training in working with survivors of rape and sexual abuse, on helplines and face to face. I have a particular interest in the impact of trauma, both recent and historical.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is a vital part of therapy and that it's important to find a therapist that you can feel you can relate to.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£45 per 50 minute session
I offer a free 15 minute phone conversation for first time prospective clients, with no commitment, so you can ask questions and get some idea of whether you feel comfortable talking with me, and then afterwards in your own time, decide if you would like to make an appointment. Please email to arrange a free phone appointment.
