About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor who is BACP registered offering a supportive environment for you to explore life’s difficulties and challenges ethically, safely and without judgement.

My belief is that no matter what age we are, we all have the potential for growth and change and it is a continuous process. Through counselling we can gain the ability to tap into this potential and discover parts of ourselves that we have not yet recognised and make the necessary changes to fulfill our current needs.

As a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, I use three main theories and adapt my style to match your own individual needs - each person is unique and what suits one, may not suit you - in the first instance, it is my role to find out what works for you and then to support you through the process, making any necessary changes as we go along.

Counselling is proven to help with depression and anxiety as well as those life struggles that occur as we move from day to day, month to month and year to year.

Training, qualifications & experience

I currently work in private practice and hold CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Studies

Since qualifying, I have attended various CPD events and courses. From these short courses, I have adopted various interventions which I may use from time to time if I feel they would help and with my clients' permission. I have developed my knowledge of risk management through experience and some of the courses listed below: -

Awareness in Bereavement Care
Neuro Linguistic Programming
Level 4 Award (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector)
Working with Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse
Confidentiality
Safeguarding Young People
Risk Management
Pre Trial Therapy
Lancashire Common Assessment Framework (CAF) and Continuum of Need (CON)

I have experience of working part time as a CPCAB tutor facilitating courses for those wanting to undertake training as a counsellor.

I am awaiting my accreditation with the BACP hold a Certificate in Clinical Supervision.
