We are registered members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within the BACP’s Ethical Framework, ensuring clients receive a safe, professional and ethical service.
Below, we introduce you to our qualified counsellors and their areas of special interest. We have also included a video expanding on our ethos and the effects the Covid pandemic has had on people’s mental health.
Diploma in Grief and Bereavement
I am a qualified counsellor and subscribe to the Humanistic approach, which focuses on the individual as a whole. Emphasis is on encouraging clients to think about their feelings and take responsibility for their thoughts and actions. I may also use interventions such as techniques and coping strategies according to an individual client’s needs.
I have an additional Diploma in Grief and Bereavement Counselling and work extensively with trauma, both historic and present day.
My client base is predominantly adults and older adults, both individuals and couples.
As we progress with therapy, we will do regular reviews around your initial hopes for counselling and how you feel about your progress, re-evaluate your goals and agree a way forward.
Throughout the session, you will be encouraged to verbalise what differences you would like the session to make in your life and how you could most benefit from our time together.

Diploma in CBT
I am an integrative counsellor who uses different theories, techniques and materials whilst working with children and young people in order to help them develop coping strategies and resolve any issues they may be dealing with.
I am a qualified Person Centred therapist and since qualifying, have gone on to gain qualifications in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
I am passionate about helping young people work through their feelings and emotions during this sometimes challenging stage of their lives. I am not there to give advice, but to provide a safe, non-judgemental space for you to talk about your feelings and emotions and to find a way together to a life that fits you. Sometimes the most difficult challenge to overcome is to ask for help, but by doing that first step will begin your journey to a better understanding of yourself and your emotions.
