About me

Hello, I'm Áine. I am a qualified counsellor and trainee psychotherapist. I work face to face and have limited online availability. I provide a warm, collaborative and non-judgemental space in which to clarify and reflect on your situation, process what you want from life and find a way of moving forward. Specialising in bereavement, anxiety, depression.

I work in private practice and have worked in the charity sector with a range of issues including bereavement, loss, trauma, abuse, low self-esteem, depression and anxiety. I offer open-ended long-term therapy and short-term counselling.

I work to BACP's ethical framework and code of practice and am undertaking a Masters in Existential Counselling & Psychotherapy, and keep up to date with developments within psychotherapy. I work with adults on a variety of different issues such as stress, self-harm, isolation, suicidal feelings, LGBTQIA+ specific issues, low self-esteem, work issues, identity issues and childhood abuse, amongst others. My specialism is in bereavement and loss.

I hold face to face sessions at my comfortable, accessible consulting room in Central Milton Keynes. I have limited availability for online sessions which I carry out on Zoom.

I offer a first, short, introductory call to see how we get on. If you feel that we might work well together we can arrange future sessions from here. If, for any reason, you don't feel that you wish to continue with me, I will seek to help you find another more suitable Counsellor, or maybe a different way to explore your presenting issues. It is important that you feel comfortable with me to enable us to work together on what is ailing you.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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).

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.
