Can Counselling or Psychotherapy help you?
Are you feeling low, anxious, irritable or stressed? You may have lost confidence or self respect in yourself and putting things off or avoiding being around others. Maybe you are facing loss or uncertainty, or you have been through some unexpected and difficult experiences.
Feeling alone with one's own thoughts and feelings with no light at the end of the tunnel, can be a living hell
People seek counselling or psychotherapy for a wide range of reasons, often linked with uncomfortable thoughts/ feelings and experiences that just don't go away. I am a psychodynamic counsellor with many years' experience and I offer counselling/psychotherapy in times when it may feel hard to find the right pathway alone. I am committed to the provision of a safe, confidential and non-judgmental setting and context for our work together, where you can begin to break down some of the barriers that may be currently standing in your way. My aim is to help you gradually to understand yourself better and to find ways of getting back on track or starting out in new directions.
Online counselling can create opportunities for people to engage with a therapist who might otherwise find this difficult, either for practical or emotional reasons. Receiving therapy in the privacy and comfort of your own home, or a private place that is special and may have significance to you.
When meeting online, the relationship that we create between us will be at the heart of our work together. We will collaborate closely to help you to explore and reflect on your past and current experiences and challenges and to face fears you may hold about the future. Through this gentle exploration, you may find you are able to gain some relief from the emotional pressures and pain that you may have found hard to manage alone and to bring about positive transformation and change.
Acorn Transformational counselling is a private counselling service, available both in person and online. Our aim is to help you deal with any problems you may be facing in a safe confidential environment. People seek counselling or psychotherapy for a wide range of reasons, often linked with uncomfortable thoughts/ feelings and experiences that just don’t go away
I specialise in the treatment of addiction which I have written and developed many successful treatment programmes over the past 18 years that are used in the community, prisons and rehabs. In that time I had the pleasure of working with a diverse range of Peale from many backgrounds/ cultures
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been practicing counselling since 2000 and have a HND in counselling and certificate in clinical supervision. Further to this I have a Diploma in Online Counselling to be able to provide online counselling in a safe and confidential manner and able to connect with others online who may be unable to attend therapy due to many reasons for example physical/ mental issues that could prevent from accessing therapy. Over the years I have dedicated my work to break down barriers and celebrate that we are all different in are own unique way.
Member organisations *
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.

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).
