About me

AT THIS TIME OF SOCIAL DISTANCING I AM HAPPY TO OFFER SESSIONS VIA ZOOM, SKYPE OR TELEPHONE AS WELL AS FACE TO FACE.

I offer counselling in a private and confidential environment and will work with you to help you deal with any personal issues including relationships, anxiety, bereavement, abuse, work related issues and general unhappiness or dissatisfaction with life.

I work in a person-centred way which means I believe in helping you explore your thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental atmosphere where you can find your own truth, answers and way forward, the way that is right for you.

It is rarely possible to talk to family or friends in a totally free manner without feeling there may be judgements on you and without having to consider their feelings about what you have to say. Person-centred counselling with myself gives you a safe, confidential and non judgemental environment to allow yourself to fully explore your thoughts and feelings and to gain a greater understanding of yourself.

I feel that a safe relationship based on trust and understanding is vital to a positive counselling experience. I believe my job is to help us to build such a relationship in order to enable you to gain greater insight, awareness and clarity into your situation, allowing you to move forward in a positive way.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor with a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology and work to the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists guidelines for good practice of which I am a member.

I have also completed an accredited course in couples counselling. 

I also offer Supervision, I completed my qualification at The Manchester Institute of Psychotherapy.

I have previous experience within the NHS and I presently work in both a High School setting and in private practice.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Supervision

Online
