About me

After years of battling mental illness I decided to help others on their quest to better mental health.

Clients have said that when working with me they are heard but in a different way.  My philosophy is that through working closely in relationship with someone clients can unearth what is truly causing them distress which often is from within.

When you are heard wholeheartedly this creates a process which over time may lead to positive change and a reduction in distress.

I firmly believe that people can and do come back from mental illness or personal set backs.

Medication is a fantastic tool in aiding someone but alone it will not solve the problem. Good mental health is like a pie and medication forms a major part of this however another major contributing slice is talking to somebody about how they truly feel.

Finding someone who can facilitate this can be very difficult.  From the support I have given and feedback I have received I do feel I have the personal qualities to provide a platform for someone to speak their mind in an honest way and in an environment where they will not be judged no matter what they say.

I offer 1-1 sessions in person or online/telephone if you prefer.  Sessions are a safe space where you can hopefully start to feel more like you again.

There is no obligation, feel free to get in touch and test the water.

All work is fully insured and I am an Accredited member of the BACP and follow their ethical framework.

Although I studied an Integrative Course my core modality is mainly Person-Centred.

It is the relationship, in my experience, that is the main tool in creating positive change and greater contentment within our lives. 

Nobody should suffer in silence, you are not alone.

Areas of speciality that may help with;

- Develop a greater awareness of self
- Help work through causes of anxiety and panic
- Explore loss
- Try to find greater meaning from life
- Explore matters that have happened past and present 
- Work through relationship difficulties 
- Try and learn causes for low mood and depression
- Look at ways of moving forwards in a more positive way
- Explore matters relating to one’s work/career
- Gain a greater understanding of yourself and what you want from life

I was surprised how much it has helped just getting things off my chest that I have never told anyone before without judgment. It’s crazy how much it has helped me with things. You’ve helped me build my confidence and made me realise it’s not always going to be bad.

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.
