About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.  My name is Beryl and I am a experienced, qualified counsellor with over twenty three years experience. I am known for my warm caring nature.  I receive many referrals from clients, I have worked with previously who recommended me to their friends and work colleagues.

I work with Families, Couples and Individuals with whatever the issues that maybe preventing  them from leading the life they desire. 

I offer a safe confidential space for you, your family and/or your partner to receive confidential empathic support to get your relationship(s) back on track.

My core foundation is Person Centred and on this I have added, an Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy from Warwick University. and offer CBT therapy for clients requiring a more structured way of working.
I also trained at Harrow College gaining a certificate in Family and Coupes work in Person Centred  Approach. 
I have also trained at Hull University to Intermediate level in Systemic Family Therapy and  worked for over ten years for the NHS as part of a Systemic Family therapy team based in Grimsby.  The team offered therapeutic support whilst working within the community mental health team covering a wide range of issues, to couples and families in the N.E. Lincs area. 

My previous experience includes working with special need children and as a Residential Social Worker within Buckinghamshire Social Services and with Families in a Family Centre.

I also previously worked in a Post Adoption Service, providing counselling and support to adult adoptee's and birth parents. This included counselling support to both parties before their reunions.  I am a accredited Adoption Counsellor linked to Barnardo's so I can offer this service to individuals in the community.

I live in the beautiful village of Irby-Upon-Humber located in the Screen%20shot%202013-05-15%20at%2016.56.Lincolnshire Wolds, just 9 miles outside Grimsby and Cleethorpes. I offer a safe confidential counselling environment to individuals, couples and families.

I have many years experience of working for Employees Assisted Programmes (EAPs') with several major EAPs. This work is time limited to usually 5-8 weeks.

My aim is to work with all the relationships in your life, to help you achieve the outcome you desire. I offer therapeutic support to all clients dealing with Anxiety, Bereavement, Divorce and Depression and any other concerns that are influencing their lives and stopping them reaching they full potential.

I offer a non judgmental, empathic counselling relationship that is built on respect and trust that leads to a deep understanding that will enable you to make the changes in your life that you looking to make.

I trained with the late Tony Merry in supervision and I offer supervision to students and qualified practising counsellors.

I offer special rates for students in both counselling and supervision.

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.

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.
