You may be feeling unhappy, unbalanced or unfulfilled in your life due to the pandemic, life events, childhood experiences or difficult relationships. Or it could be that you don't know why you're feeling the way you do, you just know that you're finding life difficult and you'd like to look at how you can change things for the better.
Feeling sad, lonely, stuck, lost, anxious or 'not good enough' are often good reasons to get professional help and counselling can be a great way to explore what's going on for you. Working with me will enable you to work through issues from your past as well as your present and allow you the freedom to let go of your pain and plan for your future.
In my work as a counsellor I have helped many female clients overcome issues such as:
• Anxiety • Depression • Anger • Low Self-Esteem • Lack of Confidence • Life Changes • Feeling Low • Family Issues • Teenager to Adult Transition • Addiction • Bereavement • Abuse • Bullying • Stress & Burn Out • Guilt & Shame • Trauma •
And through our work together by providing you with support and insight I will encourage you to reflect where you currently are in life as well as explore areas where you feel you require clarity or need to take action in order to move forward. This enhanced self-awareness will help to increase your confidence and self-esteem, improve your relationships and enhance the overall quality of your life.
As the relationship between you and your counsellor is key, I offer a free, confidential 20-minute consultation for us to discuss what you are currently struggling with and how I can help. If we feel that I am not the right counsellor for you there will be no obligation on your part to continue and I will be happy to help you find a counsellor who may be a better fit.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
