About me

My aim is to help you empower yourself to make positive change in your life. I understand that life is challenging, and it can be hard and so I provide you with an understanding and confidential space to explore your feelings, behaviours and experiences.

Through psychotherapy, I can help guide you in the right direction and support you on your journey to regaining positive mental health. Talking therapies can help you overcome pain from past events and relieve the symptoms of mental health issues. It can also help you understand your own feelings and behaviours and give you strategies for combating future challenges.

I offer session to adults, young people, couples and counselling students.

I have Post Graduate degrees in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and Clinical Psychological Research as well as an undergraduate degree in Psychology. I have worked within hospices, schools and private settings as a psychotherapist and therefore have extensive experience working with individuals and couples across a range of ages, from childhood to adulthood. As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I use a vast array of approaches which I tailor to your needs making therapy a unique experience for you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
