Sometimes adverse life experiences can leave you struggling and needing some extra support to get through difficult times. No matter what you are struggling with at the moment it is important to know that you are not alone, no matter what challenges you are facing. I truly believe that we all have the potential to grow and heal and that counselling works to facilitate this process.
Counselling can often seem like a frightening and daunting experience. It doesn't need to be, in therapy you will never have to talk about anything you do not want to and will always be in control of the process. It is a completely confidential and non judgemental space for you. Just talking to someone about your feelings can make a profound difference.
I offer individual online counselling for adults using various platforms such as Skype or Zoom.

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).
