Why come to counselling?
Counselling is a type of talking therapy which offers confidential support in a warm and non-judgemental way.
You may be coming to counselling because you are in crisis, unable to see a way through a situation or feeling lost or alone.
You might be seeking the 'right' answer around difficult life decisions when it feels that making a decision seems impossible.
It may have taken many years to find the courage to seek help for issues which run deep, perhaps stemming from difficult, early experiences in childhood or from trauma.
Perhaps you are looking for very specific tools and techniques to manage and cope with anxieties or stresses.
Whatever is causing you to reach out at this time, I offer an accepting, empowering and encouraging environment as I assist you to find ways to move forward.
I am a fully qualified counsellor, with a BA (Hons) Degree and a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), meaning that I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. This guides my counselling work, ensuring that I operate safely and ethically. I am fully insured and qualified to work with adult clients.
My approach is Integrative, meaning that I can integrate a number of methods and techniques to offer the right support for each individual. I am able to work with both the 'here and now' but also more deeply, looking at unconscious processes and how the past may shape the present.

I have counselled adults struggling with a range of issues including depression, anxiety and lack of confidence as well as low self-esteem, relationship problems and identity issues.
I can support with the following; anxiety, depression, stress, bullying, domestic abuse, self-esteem, loneliness, sexual abuse, relationship issues, addictions, co-dependency, anger, loss, bereavement, sexuality, identity issues, body image, workplace difficulties, major life changes like redundancy or divorce, disabilities, self-harm and personal development.
I have several years' experience within the helping professions including time with a domestic abuse charity, supporting adult survivors of physical, sexual, financial and emotional abuse. I have experience within a substance misuse counselling agency, assisting those struggling with addictions. I have also helped to manage a children and young persons mental health charity, offering 1-2-1 counselling and group work for those experiencing emotional distress. Part of this work included counselling adolescents in schools.
Prices and Process
Once you make the decision to seek support, you can reach me by telephone or email:
We will have an initial conversation about what brings you to counselling and if we decide to meet, our first session will be an opportunity for us to see if we feel we can work together.
I offer weekly sessions of 1-2-1 counselling. Each session is 50 minutes long.
Some individuals have just a few sessions, others choose longer term support.
Each session costs £55. I offer a limited number of discounted sessions for students and those on low incomes.
Payment is due at time of session, and can be made in cash or by bank transfer.
