About me

Hi my name is Aimee, welcome to my profile. 

Things happen in life which can leave you feeling confused, bringing up thoughts and feelings which can feel uncomfortable and difficult to make sense of. 

I will sit with you in a compassionate space where you can explore those thoughts and feelings – where you are listened to and heard with no judgements or opinions. Relationships and how we relate to others and ourselves is, I believe at the core of us all. Counselling allows you the chance to explore your relationships, emotions and emotional history along with life experiences if that is what you wish to process in order for your life to be as you want it to be. 

As well as face to face counselling I am also a walking therapist. Being outside amongst nature provides a different space for counselling bringing emotional health, wellbeing and nature together.

I work with different therapy approaches depending on what you would like to explore in counselling. 

If you would like to chat to see if I could help you explore your life and make decisions about how your life might be as satisfying and as happy as possible please give me a call. 

Thanks for reading

Aimee

Member organisations

BACP

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.
