About me

We are all have our own 'unique life experience' that shapes our ideology and helps to mould the person that we eventually become. This in turn will have a bearing upon how we perceive our environment and come to terms with the many challenges that may face us upon our journey.
The ethos of 'My counselling' is to 'Celebrate Your Individuality'
I offer a Humanistic and Integrative counselling service that sponsors the creativity of the individual.
I offer counselling for bereavement, or loss . Anxiety caused by life changing situations that we have no control over. Depression, where you feel debilitated and you need to gain motivation and perspective.  Anger management or Relationship issues, or if you are simply feeling overwhelmed and don't know where to turn

To share is to know that you are not alone.

Please feel free to contact me for more information.
I am a member of BACP and follow the ethical code of practice.
Thank you for taking time to look at my profile.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

Losing a loved one is the most devastating and life changing experiences we can have. Coming to terms with a bereavement is extremely difficult, and involves working through several emotional stages. These are known as the Khubler Ross 5 grief stages, denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. These stages will not nessecarily follow one after the other and can often reoccur over the grieving period. The time that this may take, can't be measured and will be different for each individual.
An aged Grandparent who passes away will be sadly missed; but a parent losing a child will turn our expectations and assumptions on their head. The process of mourning will be defined not only by who the deceased was, but also by the nature of the survivor's relationship to that person.
Our ability to cope at this time can be very difficult, and it can often be helpful to talk to someone who is not connected with your loss. This is where bereavement counselling can be of help.

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.
