WORKING WITH YOU, TO FIND A WAY FORWARD.... I am a Registered Counsellor and Accredited Member of BACP, offering you a service tailored to your needs and requirements. I work with Adult individuals on both a long and short term basis.
I have experience of working with a range of issues including:
Anxiety, Assertiveness Skills Development, Bereavement, Bullying, Carer Support, Career Development, Depression, Generalised Anxiety, General Counselling, Grief, Low Self Esteem, Low Self Confidence, Management Development, Personal Coaching, Personal Development, Relationship Issues, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Work Related Issues and Stress, to name just a few.
I have a special interest in working with Stress, Stress Management and Work Related Stress issues and have had training in recognising and coping with Stress and it's effects.
In addition to self referrals, I also work with referrals from:
Human Resource (HR) Departments for Private Organisations
Occupational Health Providers
Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Organisations
Other Counselling Organisations
My original Counsellor Training was in the Humanistic Approach. This means that I see you as a unique individual capable of making choices, asking for what you need and able to take responsibility for your own actions. Once qualified and through my experiences of working with individuals in the Criminal Justice System, I developed an interest in working with the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach to Counselling (thought and behavioural patterns) and feel the way I work as a Counsellor complements both theories and approaches.
I love working as a Counsellor because I have a desire to make a difference in the life of others. I have had many occasions in Counselling Practice where I have seen "light bulbs go on" and witnessed my client telling me that their life has changed as a result of new insight. This is a joy for me to be a part of. Seeing another grow, through recognition that they can and realising that they can do this through their own abilities, is essentially why I work as a Counsellor.
When I embark on a Counselling relationship all I ever ask of myself is that I give my best to you, using the best techniques and theory, I am aware of to help and educate you.
If you like, give you the tools to work with. The rest is up to you, you work within the process and take what you need from it.
Counselling takes place in a confidential setting and is an equal partnership where we work together to explore your thoughts, feelings, patterns and options.
The aim of Counselling is to enable you to make sense of your situation, whilst working towards coming to terms with new experiences and facing them with less tension and anxiety.
Counselling involves looking at yourself and your problem and ways in which you can feel more at ease within your situation to begin to make decisions about where you want to be, by looking at where you are now.
BACP Accreditation means that I have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
My BACP Registration Number is 025638. Further information about the BACP register can be found by clicking on either of the following links www.bacp.co.uk or www.bacpregister.org.uk/check_register/.
I also have Senior Accredited Registrant Membership of the National Counselling Society (NCS) having fulfilled the required criteria to be considered, by the National Counselling Society, to be safe, competent and ethical to practice the vocation of Counselling.
As a BACP Accredited Counsellor I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure therein for the time being in force and as revised from time to time.
All Counselling sessions last for 50 - 60 minutes. Sessions are usually weekly, at least for the first two to three weeks. However dependent on your circumstances and needs, longer time periods between sessions can be negotiated. The total number of sessions will depend on your needs. Some issues require only a few sessions, whilst others require more.

Tuesday to Friday from 4.30pm
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. If you decide that Counselling may be of benefit to you and that I may be the right Counsellor for you, please contact me to arrange an appointment.
