Counselling is about us building a relationship, where you feel free to talk through whatever you may wish to discuss, in a confidential and non-judgemental setting. Issues can vary from: relationships, identity, stress, anxiety, or depression, to a whole variety of other issues. Duration can vary from short term focused work, to more long term personal development. I am a person centred / Integrative counsellor, who works using a variety of methods, adapted to individual needs. I have been accredited by the BACP. I work with adults, young people, couples and families.
I specialise in diversity issues:
- Individuals who have experienced discrimination or oppression as a result of their difference.
- Young people struggling at school or with their identity.
- Those who do not identify as "gender or sexuality typical": LGBTQ+.
- Individuals who do not identify as "neuro-typical" or who may have been diagnosed as ASD, ADHD, etc
- People who are psychically diverse; who hear voices, see visions, or who have relationships with spirits or imaginary beings.

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.
