I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I work to the Ethical Framework of the BACP. I can offer both Person-Centred Counselling to help you try and come to terms with your thoughts, feelings and emotions about something that may be troubling you from your past, present or future, and also Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), which can try to help you recognise and become more aware of your behaviours, thoughts, feelings and emotions about a situation or event in your life. Seeing a Counsellor for the first time may feel daunting and I fully understand these feelings. Talking with a Counsellor may help to give you more awareness and understanding and provide help and support and encourage you to develop confidence in your own ability to help yourself.
Counselling is a confidential talking therapy and may be able to help you with bereavement or other losses, stress and worry about the past, present and future, depression, relationship issues, anxiety, illness, abuse, bullying and the many personal issues which affect us as we go through life.
I work from my home and I live in a quiet cul-de-sac, with on-street parking available and I also offer one to one home counselling visits. After seeing clients for a number of years, I believe counselling can provide a unique, beneficial and sometimes extra support for someone at a time of great change, upheaval and uncertainty in their life. Many clients have said to me, that coming and talking to a counsellor wasn’t quite what they had expected and that it had helped them in many different ways.
I also have a professional and personal interest in Mindfulness and NLP
