Are you feeling stuck and don't know what to do for the best? Or is something is missing in your life but you're not quite sure what it is? Let me help you:
• Develop a strong sense of who you are
• Feel more content in your relationships
• Develop confidence in your abilities as a parent, at work, with hobbies, etc
• Find a sense of peace and inner calm
Due to life events such as infidelity, trauma, parenting, separation, illness, bereavement, bullying or toxic relationships we can often feel like we've lost parts of ourselves and as a result we can be left feeling undervalued, overwhelmed, resentful, angry, sad or lonely. These feelings can often lead to struggling with low self-esteem, anxiety or depression.
Whether you want to live a more calm, content and balanced life or really push yourself to achieve goals that currently seem so far away, I can provide a warm, friendly, non-judgemental and confidential space in which you will feel safe to reflect on your issues, work through them and find a positive way forward.
I am happy to work with your everyday thoughts as well as difficult past experiences and fears for the future. No problem is too big or too small and all thoughts, feelings and emotions are welcome.

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.

Free initial online session
I can deliver both short-term and long-term counselling and at your initial consultation we can explore your goals for counselling and how many sessions this is likely to require, then have regular reviews as we go along.

- 50 minute weekly counselling sessions held online or by telephone - £50
My working hours are 9-6pm Monday to Friday. I am flexible and can offer you either a regular time slot each week or, you can book your next session at the end of the previous one.
I appreciate that coming to counselling can be daunting, especially if it’s your first experience of being in therapy. I am happy to offer a free no-obligation 20-minute chat on Zoom to find out what brings you to counselling, how I can help and whether we are a good fit. I will also tell you a little more about how I work and answer any questions you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you, Terri-Ann
