I'm flexible regarding different times of the day for your sessions to help suit you.
How Counselling Can Help You
I work in a Person-centred way, which means I offer a confidential, respectful, safe environment, where we can build a relationship that allows you to explore what is bothering you without fear of being judged. I will to listen to you, hear your story and the impact it is having on you and help you to recognise how we can improve your situation.
It is my hope that I can support you to get greater clarity of thought, to feel more in control of your life, to find a level of acceptance regarding your situation, thus allowing you to make positive choices.
I look forward to supporting you to work towards improving your mental health and well-being so that you can enjoy moving on with your life.

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.
