Welcome to CaLM Counselling and Life Management offering a safe and confidential counselling service with life management skills to individuals in face to face sessions. Supporting clients in their emotional healing and facilitating the changes needed to find a more productive way of being.
Counselling is not just about listening; it provides the opportunity to challenge negative thinking and gives space to develop the strategies that enable change. If you feel stuck in the same cycle of emotions and behaviours and feel you cant move forward, then perhaps counselling is for you.
Following an initial assessment we will agree upon a working contract following the ethical framework of the BACP. You will be offered six initial counselling sessions with review and flexibility for continued work.
All counselling sessions are conducted from a private address so as to maintain client discretion at all times. Parking is available
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified practitioner with experience in both private practice and the voluntary sector.
I have a Practitioners Diploma in Counselling and a BSc Degree in Therapeutic Counselling
I have always been interested in the complexity of human behaviour and interactions. After studying psychology and sociology I enrolled on a concepts to counselling course and realised that the concepts of counselling sat comfortably with my own personal core believes and ethics. After qualifying as a Counsellor I am privileged to have worked with a diversity of clients with many issues.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
