About me

I offer individual counselling to children and to adults.

My core training is Person Centred counselling, which is the basis for all the work I undertake and is based on empathy, honesty and being authentic.

In addition to counselling sessions, I offer relaxation classes, bespoke emotional well-being sessions, and consultation and training in mental health for schools and nurseries.

Each client is accepted and valued as himself or herself. I offer a confidential, safe place where you are heard. This is time to explore problem areas in your life within a non-judgemental, open and trusting relationship. The aim is to help you to understand yourself more and to reach your potential, perhaps finding resolutions or developing coping strategies.

My counselling sessions take place in strict confidence, and I remain impartial and non-judgemental. I aim to develop a relationship of mutual trust, empathy and challenge. The therapy room is a safe space in which you are able to share the load of whatever it is that is preventing you from feeling in control of your life. I have worked effectively with many different individuals, presenting with many different issues, and I will always allow your specific needs to inform the way we work, introducing techniques or suggestions to help you to understand and find a solution to your situation. Together we can begin to understand why you are struggling, addressing the way past situations, relationships and events may have impacted on your life, and finding practical ways of dealing with stress to improve the way that you feel.

I believe that we all hold within us the answer to our own problems and that the therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor is a unique and powerful one, which can lead to the resolution of issues in a lasting and effective way. The personal strength which comes from finding your own solution can remain with you and be drawn upon in the future.

In accordance with the BACP's guidelines for on-going professional development, I have regular supervision, and regularly engage in CPD activities.

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.

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.
