Sometimes as human beings we lose sight of what we want, what we need and what is right for us. The outside world, our relationships, families, and work can influence our decisions. Life throws us challenges that we have to deal with, we go through crisis and encounter loss and uncertainty. These experiences can leave us feeling isolated, anxious, or overwhelmed and depressed. We can lose sight of ourselves and what really matters to us, feeling unable to talk about how we feel to those we are closest to.

Many factors stop us seeking help with the difficulties we face in life. Perhaps some denial there is a problem, not knowing what kind of help is on offer or where to go for it. We may believe things won’t change even if help is sought. We can be fearful of facing our problems and what is troubling us. Sometimes the fear of talking about it can make it seem more real. Additionally there is still a worry of being stigmatised and labelled for seeking help from a counsellor.

Making the decision to seek therapy is one of the hardest and finding someone to trust with your most intimate thoughts and feelings can be very daunting. It is important someone who is correctly qualified and ethical is chosen for this privilege.

I am a qualified person centred counsellor and an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). BACP accreditation is a widely valued quality status that reflects my level of experience and high work standard. As a member of the BACP I must adhere to their ethical framework.

My clients are central to my work and my practice has been developed out of my desire to help people feel fulfilled. I believe that counselling has the potential to make a real difference in people’s lives.
