Sometimes life experiences can become overwhelming and feel too much to cope with. This can lead to us to feeling vulnerable and isolated and prevent us moving forward with our lives. Sometimes we need somebody who will listen to us without judgement to help us work through things to lead to a better understanding of ourselves and our experiences and sometimes just hold our hand whilst we sit in that darkness.
I work with clients who are struggling with feelings of depression, anxiety & other overwhelming life experiences. I also work with bereavement and can help you through the grieving process. I have trained & worked with suicidal clients and have also done specialist training in Sexual abuse victim support. I also offer pet bereavement support and I have experience with the pressures of professional footballers and people who dissociate and have separate parts with or without a diagnosis of DID.
I have training in Trauma and Somatic experiencing.
I work in a gentle way with my clients and offer a safe, warm environment where you can leave the world and its judgements at the door and come in to just be you.
I also offer supervision to person centred trainees and newly qualified counsellors.

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.
