About me

I am a highly experienced Integrative Clinical Psychotherapist and Counsellor who works with a wide range of issues from Depression and Anxiety through to complex mental health issues. My view is that we all have times in out lives when things can become difficult for us, or we Screen%20shot%202012-09-17%20at%2015.10.feel there is no way forward. Our friends and family can offer support, but sometimes this isn't enough, or there are feelings you just can't share and may hold onto for years.

At times, it can be valuable to work with someone who is totally independent of your life. This gives you the opportunity to fully explore your own feelings within an understanding, non-judgemental and confidential relationship.

I strongly believe that each person has the potential for positive growth. To gain greater insight and a fresh perspective on their life. Allowing recognition of their own personal strength within, to take hold of, and move forward.

I am an experienced Integrative Clinical Psychotherapist and have qualified for my Post Graduate Diploma and Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy at The Metanoia Institute in London. I also hold a Graduate Diploma in Professional Counselling.

Member organisations

BACP

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

Working together generally consists of an initial consultation to discuss your issues, if you feel psychotherapy or counselling would be of benefit to you, and that we feel comfortable working together.My private practice is based at my studio in Ulverston, and my hours arranged to suit my clients where possible. This can be discussed initially.
I offer online counselling by Skype too as I feel visual and verbal communication are extremely important when discussing personal issues.

Accessibility

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.
