*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 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.
