By telephone or face to face, and Zoom counselling with me offers a 'safe place' to discuss and work through whatever is causing distress in your life.
Relationship difficulties, addiction, depression, anxiety, stress, or bereavement issues. Whatever is causing you difficulty in your world I will do my best to help you understand and work through what may be holding you back from enjoying a happier more fulfilling life.
We will work with your thoughts feelings and behaviour and anything impacting on you now from your past.
I am passionate about working with people, using my counselling skills and over a period of time observing how the distress and emotional pain become more manageable. When asked What is counselling I often describe it as a safely held place to unpack all that is overloading your mind, sifting through it with guidance letting go of some, then rearranging the rest so that your world starts to make sense and become manageable again.
My specialist areas are:
Issues surrounding Relationships, Bereavement & Mental illness.
I do not judge
I do not give advice
However, I do know how difficult it is to make that first contact. My sensitivity and caring nature I hope will make it easier for you.
Text, email or telephone.
I look forward to hearing from you and will answer any questions.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists I abide by their code of ethical frame work for good practice.
I am passionate about Counselling and Psychotherapy and continuously study and learn all I can.
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
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.
