Please do feel free to contact me should you require any further information.
I am a very experienced, professionally qualified and Accredited Counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and my details and confirmation of my training can be found on their website. I have over 21 years experience working with clients. I am also a UK Registered Independent Counsellor (UKRCP). Details of my qualifications can be found on the BACP website. I comply with their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work near Wisbech, Cambridgeshire with easy access from Wisbech, Murrow, Parson Drove, March, Cambridgeshire
I have a background of working in the NHS for 11 years and have worked as a counsellor in private practice since 2005 having started my counselling training in 2000.
I provide a completely confidential, sensitive, caring and reliable relationship where you will be supported during difficult times. I work with clients from the age of 15 years upwards.
As an integrative/CBT counsellor, I am very experienced in helping with issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, generalised anxiety disorder, panic attacks, relationship and work issues, low self esteem, confidence issues, amongst others. Because, I am trained to work in a number of different approaches (Integrative) I am able to adapt our sessions to work with individual clients dependent on their presenting issues. Please feel free to take a look at my website at http://www.counsellingwisbech.co.uk
At times it can be difficult to confide in relatives and friends. You may not want to worry them with your feelings. Having therapy, enables you express your thoughts and feelings freely in a non-judgemental and confidential environment.
COGNITIVE-BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)
I am also qualified to work with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and help clients find coping strategies for their issues to help them identify faulty thinking processes, which often contribute to their problems. CBT helps clients gain an understanding of how their thoughts, affect their feelings and in turn how these affect behaviour. CBT is now widely recognised as one of the most effective therapies for a range of issues.
In addition, I am trained in Hypnotherapy which is extremely helpful for numerous issues, including, depression, anxiety, IBS, low self esteem, panic attacks, low confidence , sleep problems, unresolved issues, OCD etc. My qualification for my Hypnotherapy practice is is Foundation in Clinical & Academic Hypnosis (British Society of Academic & Clinical Hypnosis)BSCAH
I have, at times, vacancies for students who are on counselling courses and offer sessions at £40 per session.
In addition, I offer telephone counselling for clients who, find it difficult, for any reason, to attend face to face sessions.
I offer sessions over Zoom
I have availability during the weekdays (Tue/Wed daytime from 9am) and weekday evenings (6pm, 7pm and 8pm appointments). Other appointments may be available on request including Saturday sessions.
Parking is available.

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.
