At times of increased anxiety looking after our emotional health is more important than ever. Due to COVID19 ,I can support you now with online/phone therapy. It starts with a free chat so don't hesitate to be in touch.
My approach to therapy is to create a place for you to feel safe and a space for you to develop trust to share your life experiences ranging from daily life stresses to deep rooted issues. Through our therapeutic relationship, we can then discover together how to work on your concerns and apply tools to deal with your issues, so that growth and healing can occur.
I will support you to make sense of what is happening in your life and to reconnect to yourself, reduce anxiety and improve your self confidence. Further, when working with couples we will work together as a team to improve communication skill and experience renewed connectivity.

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.
