About me

Sometimes it might be difficult to find your way through challenging times alone or understand how something significant in your life has affected you. Within therapy we can explore and discover together how to find a way through, free of any judgment. Exploring such things can make you feel worse before you feel better. This is because sharing thoughts, feelings and memories can be intense and painful, especially if it is your first time opening up to someone else. Therapy helps this process become a movement towards personal growth, understanding, acceptance and change.

Who I am as a Therapist

I am a warm and accepting person. I do not judge, and I truly believe that we are the captains of our own ships. Meaning that you are in charge of yourself and your life. things might seem out of control at times and it is ok to ask for help. I am not afraid to sit with you through the storm and the journey might be a rocky one and you might get slightly seasick. It is ok to find things hard and it is difficult to man a ship without ship mates so let us take this journey together.

I work with a wide range of issues. A few examples of these are: depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, relationship issues and long-term illnesses. I have a particular interest working with bereavement.

I offer short term and long term therapy please see below in the further information section if you would like to learn more about the types of therapy I offer. I also provide a free Skype or telephone consultation so we can talk in more detail about how I work. It also, gives you the chance to ask me any questions about the therapy process and ultimately will help you make the decision if I am the right therapist for you.

Member organisations

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.

Further information

Therapy offered

I am a person-centred, humanistic counsellor and psychotherapist, Person-centred therapy is a  talking therapy that provides the psychological environment for personal growth. As humans we all want to strive to reach our full potential. Aspects of the past can be deep rooted and just as we look after plants, we acknowledge that the roots must be there, nourished, watered and tentatively looked after for growth and change to happen just like humans. I provide a comfortable, warm, empathic environment free from judgment. I will not tell you what to do because I believe that you have the power to make the decisions that are right for you and you are the expert on you. I can, however, help you find some strategies to help you to look after your own wellbeing whilst you are on this journey.

I also have Solution-Focused brief therapy training. This type of counselling is mainly used for short term therapy. However, the conditions shown above will not be lost. The focus on this type of therapy is to set goals and work towards these goals within the therapy. The therapy is more directive and the focus will be on aspects of change, what has happened in the past, where you would like to be and focusing on the self-governing strategies that are manageable to you to be able to get there.
