Balancing Rocks

"I offer a non-judgemental and confidential service  that offers you dignity and respect regardless of your circumstances."

Respect and kindness

I offer a gentle and respectful space to allow you to explore current and past challenges that can cause stress, sadness and anxiety in your life. Whatever the situation, I will work with you as a unique individual to find a better way to navigate your circumstances. We will work together at your pace and review next steps at frequent intervals. I have over 30 years experience of working with young people, adults, couples and families

I am non-judgemental and will provide a confidential service that offers you dignity and respect regardless of your circumstances.

I am an accredited Counsellor with the British Association of Psychotherapy (BACP) and have trained in a variety of approaches including many years as a Relate trained Relationship/Couples Counsellor.
As a member of BACP I work within a strict code of conduct, values and ethics.

I am an integrative Counsellor; my original post-graduate training was in psychodynamic (understanding how our past influences our present) and person-centred ( working with you as the expert in your own world) I then studied systemic practice (how we are all part of and influenced by the people and circumstances we live within) I also hold humanistic values ( we are all doing the best we can with the life and skills we have been given).

I practice in a private and confidential environment that allows you to feel safe to take the steps you need towards taking back control of your life. Talking therapies enable people to better understand themselves and their own reactions to sets of circumstances, whilst enabling them to begin to make more positive life choices.

I work Online predominantly but will work from a private room should large Family work be requested.

If you feel unsure about the therapeutic process please feel free to call and have a private conversation to help you make the decision that is right for you and to give you confidence to make those first steps to help yourself and your situation.

Some individuals or couples find that just a few sessions can help them make the changes or offer the support they need, others will choose longer. I offer short and long term therapy and will work with you to tailor the counselling to best meet your needs.

"Every year I undertake and update my knowledge and skills base by attending new training events and conferences. I believe that continuous learning enables counsellors to adapt to diverse client needs, fostering a deeper understanding of various issues and cultures. It also enhances my ability to establish trust, maintain boundaries, and navigate complex situations"
