About me

How can counselling help you?

Hello, thank you for taking the first step and stopping by. I am sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulties, though pleased you are willing to change direction which is an important step.

Choosing a Therapist is important. Do you need a safe and confidential space where you have the freedom to talk openly and be heard, with no judgment or interruptions, discussing your overwhelming thoughts which are leading into your day-to-day stress and anxiety, holding you back from your true potential? Get in touch today to arrange a free consultation.

Together we can start working on a better today, using a wide range of creative sensory methods, letting you open your mind to new insights on your daily life.

Do you find yourself feeling alone, sad, anxious, struggling to sleep, feeling low self-esteem overwhelmed?

Are you struggling with addiction? Is it a daily battle to stop what you know is hurting you? Whether it is a mental or physical strain, together we can work on unfolding the trauma behind the addiction and formulate a plan to overcome the addiction.

Are you struggling with trauma? Is a past trauma weighing on your conscience holding you back from living your life experiences. Together we can work with your trauma to learn new self-growth and development?

Do you feel I would like to change direction? Today is the day, you can take the next brave step in your personal journey.

Please Do not Suffer in Silence.

What to expect within a counselling session

Counselling sessions will involve you talking about personal thoughts and maybe sensitive feelings. I will walk with you through your therapeutic journey, you will be heard with empathy.

Who has counselling? People from anywhere, facing a variety of problems can seek professional help at some time in their life. One of the rewards for me is to watch a person begin to explore and gain their own ideas to empower and develop a deeper understanding of self.  Some stop striving for perfection and find the acceptance of self. Talking can help you to achieve good mental health and help you maintain the changes  to assist you when you are feeling lower.

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.
