*Online and socially distanced therapy available*
Everyone experiences life differently, sometimes it's good, sometimes..not so good. If you are struggling at the moment and would like someone to talk to, I can offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can speak freely. This can be either long or short term work.
Therapy can help resolve personal and emotional difficulties, whether you are experiencing a life changing event, such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy or maybe you're just not feeling like your normal self but not sure why. You can talk about anything at all that's worrying you or causing you sleepless nights or anxiety. Sometimes even day to day life and parenting alone can feel like an uphill struggle. I believe I have a good rapport with teenagers and have worked with sixth formers in a school placement

Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Integrative Counsellor which means I draw from various different theories to enable you to get the most out of your counselling session.
I am also a qualified and practicing aromatherapist, this is something I may combine with counselling in the future as I believe the two compliment each other beautifully . Another amazing therapy which you may already use is music.
I am also a volunteer counsellor at a local hospice, offering bereavement counselling.
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.
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.
