I am a fully registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).  I work within accordance with their Ethical Framework Guidelines.

My Belief

Therapy is about offering a supporting safe contained environment to talk about the issue to 

gain understanding and knowledge, relating to the problem.  I provide the environment Client’s need to support this process, to what is happening in their world.

I appreciate entering into therapy is sometimes not an easy thing to do.  However, having the opportunity to talk freely to someone, without being judged or shamed, who really listens, can help make the difference, they are looking to enhancing their life.
