About me

Hi my name is Diane.

I offer counselling through face to face,Skype / Vimeo / Telephone / Zoom.

Please contact me via my mobile. 

I am an experienced trained counsellor and Clinical Supervisor Course
 My work is with individuals, couples and groups. I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Member and work within their Ethical Framework.

I hold full professional and public liability insurance.  I am CRB enhanced checked.

I work from my home and via online zoom.
I offer a confidential and safe place to share inner secrets that may have been hindering, living life to the full. This is also a time to explore and find a new way ahead.

Counselling is used by many people to look at difficulties in their lives. I provide a confidential space in which you can receive help to resolve issues and create a life with more clarity. This may be achieved through exploring your hopes, fears, beliefs and gaining awareness about the relationships you have with yourself and others.
Counselling can create a window through which you may see new choices, other ways of approaching past or present problems and behaviours, and make changes -

If you do things the way you always did, you will get what you always got, if you want something different, make a change. 

I can use different interventions like; shells and stones, metaphors, guided imagery to help people find a way to move on or explore their difficulties in a way that suits them. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified in Humanistic Integrative therapy including; CBT, Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Solution Focused, short and long term therapy. Single and couples sessions. Long and short term. 

I worked for a nationwide service (Mind) offering counselling with mental health issues and general counselling, for over 10 years.
I have an Integrative approach to counselling. This means I draw on a number of therapeutic models according to your needs. The core counselling model underpinning all my work is called Person Centred.
My approach is to treat my clients with empathy, understanding, acceptance, authenticity, and listen carefully to what they speak about. I am neither directive nor judgmental but I can certainly be challenging.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
