I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor offering a warm, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to share difficult issues and feelings that may be confusing or overwhelming. I have experience working with a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, bereavement and low self-esteem.
I aim to provide a respectful and supportive relationship through which we can explore any difficulties that may be impacting your life. With time and the opportunity to talk and be heard, you can begin to gain more self-awareness and a deeper understanding of yourself and your relationships.
I would suggest an initial consultation to talk about your current circumstances and see whether counselling feels right for you and how we might work together. I can offer short-term therapy agreements of 6-12 weeks and long-term therapy depending on your needs.
Sessions will be at the same time each week (weekdays only) and last 50 minutes.

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).
