However it is that you are feeling and whatever it is that you are experiencing, I will sit with, listen to and work together with you to help you resolve your difficulties.
Maybe what you are feeling has only started recently, or maybe it is an old, familiar experience. Maybe you don't quite have a name for it and instead have a mix of difficult emotions such as sadness, loneliness, anger, panic, futility or feeling stuck. That's ok. Together we can explore the meaning behind the feelings you are experiencing, to help you out of where you are now and towards where you want to be.
My approach is friendly, gentle and supportive, and together we will work to make this a transformative experience for you.

- separation and divorce
- relationship problems
- family issues
- identity issues
- coercive control
- grief and bereavement
I am fully insured, receive ongoing clinical supervision and am committed to continuous professional development training. I am also a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) and I adhere to their ethical framework and standards. Details of my membership can be found on their site.
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.

If you would like to talk further about what happens next, please get in touch. We can then arrange a free initial session to talk about what you want to get out of counselling, and for you to check whether I am the right counsellor for you.
If you don't get through to me straight away, please leave a message. I aim to respond to all messages within 4 hours.
I look forward to working with you!
