I am a warm, empathic professionally qualified counsellor with experience of working with trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, bereavement and relationship issues.
There are many different approaches to counselling and I believe that one size does not fit all. My approach is integrative allowing for flexibility and adapting to your needs and what works for you.
Research has shown that it is not the the therapy but the therapist that determines the success of counselling. Therefore it is vital that when choosing your therapist you feel a connection and can 'hit it off'.
Do you feel like you need to clear the fog from your mind? Do you feel confused, restless and struggle to make decisions? Is your day consumed with worry and anxieties over even the smallest of things? Do you find it difficult to motivate yourself, feel negative a lot of the time or have a sense of hopelessness about your future? Have you had traumatic experiences that have stopped you from moving on with your life?
If you feel you can relate to any of the above, or are struggling with any other issues that you would like help with why don't you give me a call and we can have a chat and discuss how I might be able to help you.

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.
