Who Am I?
I am a Kind, Friendly and approachable individual who is passionate about people's mental health, mental well-being, and spiritual health, be that on an individual, group, or team basis. 
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy,(BACP), as a member of this body I work safely, ethically and with integrity with my clients and always put the clients best interests at the forefront of our work together.

Entering into therapy/counselling can be a daunting feeling for many people, therefore it is important to me that you feel that you have a safe place in which to explore the difficulties you are experiencing, and  that the working relationship is based upon trust, confidentiality and a non judgmental alliance.
I believe that I can, and do provide all of these qualities to my clients as well as warmth, understanding and empathy. It is also important to me that the work together is  at a pace that is comfortable for you the client.  I am deeply committed to, and motivated by the work I do with people, and take great satisfaction in seeing people shift and improve their situation and outlook by working together in a therapeutic relationship.

I have worked with many issues including:
Stress,  Worries, Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Self Improvement, Self Confidence, Relationships, Seperation, Divorce, Infidelity. Problem solving, Self Harm, Addiction, Drugs, Alcohol, Gambling. Bereavement & Loss. Fear, feeling scare about the future. Abuse, Sexual, emotional and Physical, and feeling like a failure or not good enough.
