Are you feeling anxious or stressed? Lacking in energy and concentration? Struggling with the relationships in your life? Worried about the future?
We all face challenges in life, from time to time, and this is when counselling can be invaluable. I am an integrative therapist, which means that I can work in a bespoke way to meet your individual needs, offering counselling for a range of emotional issues. I work with clients from any race, culture, religion or sexual orientation, on a broad range of issues on both a short and long term basis.
My approach is warm, empathic and respectful and I offer you a safe, confidential space to understand and process difficult and challenging memories from your past, help you to utilise coping strategies to deal with problems in your everyday life, enabling you to move forward into a more positive future.
I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist.
I have received specialist training in grief and loss through my work as a Bereavement Volunteer at Cruse Bereavement Care.
I have worked in mental health for many years, including supporting clients with complex mental health needs, supporting clients back into paid employment after a long absence and managing a homeless hostel.
I have also previously worked as a volunteer for the Samaritans.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
