I am a fully qualified counsellor, having successfully completed the BA (Hons) Counselling Studies degree programme, with several years of experience in the counselling field. I offer professional, confidential and lower cost, person-centred counselling.
I work with those aged 16 years and above, offering one-to-one counselling or couples counselling.
The counselling that I offer is usually open-ended, but can be flexible with whether it is long or short term counselling, depending on the individual client's needs.
Counselling offers a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore any issues that the client may have, in order to gain more insight and understanding into themselves and their feelings and to identify any areas of life that a client may wish to change.
The building of an equal and trusting relationship is paramount to my work and I believe that each client that I work with is an individual and value them as such, working in an empathic and understanding way to help the client to discover and learn more about themselves and to find their own unique way of resolving any issues that are impacting upon them and moving forward with their lives.
In terms of my professional practice, I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and on the BACP Accredited Voluntary Register. This means that I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework, and as such attend regular supervision, hold a current and up to date Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check and am fully covered by Professional Indemnity insurance.
