Welcome to my profile page.
Looking for a counsellor can be a daunting prospect.
I offer a supportive, accepting, professional and confidential Therapeutic Counselling Service where you can be yourself. Small steps can lead to big changes and you have made the first, sometimes difficult step to seek help.
I understand we all have bad days sometimes, in which days just don't seem to end and where stress and anxiety can affect our whole way of being. I have many years of experience working with individuals and couples and I understand the difficulties faced and the mixed emotions that can be felt.
In our complimentary meeting session we can discuss what has bought you to therapy and focus on the changes you may want to make.
I appreciate it is not easy to face some difficult issues or even think about making changes but hopefully with my help and support you will find the confidence and courage to make these changes.
I offer Integrative Therapeutic Counselling which includes Person Centred Therapy, Psychodynamic Transactional Analysis and CBT
Sessions are 50 minutes long and I offer both long term and short term therapy.
Please feel free to contact me and to book our complimentary meeting session.

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.

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).
