I am a Person-Centred counsellor with experience in working with individuals who are distressed. I can offer non-judgmental acceptance and a safe, confidential environment so that clients can express their feelings. Previous clients have complimented me on being empathetic and good at listening to what is being said. In these troubling times, I provide an opportunity to talk through difficulties and bring clarity and order to what is being experienced.
What I can help with
Anxiety, bereavement, personal relationships, low self-esteem, anger, loss, stress, trauma, work related issues, exhaustion, past hurt.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I'm a Registered Member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I trained in two local voluntary counselling services in Warrington and Runcorn during 2018/2019 and have lived in Warrington for almost 30 years.
I have worked with adult clients across all age groups and backgrounds, and built relationships that are supportive, therapeutic and professional. These relationships help clients to feel welcome and valued, enabling them to talk about distressing issues in an open way.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fee for counselling via Zoom or by telephone is £30 per hour.
Payments are made by bank transfer at least 24 hours before the appointment.
Appointment cancellations within 48 hours will attract the full fee.
I can offer sessions during the morning, afternoon or evenings, Monday to Friday. I am also available on Saturday mornings.
My First Session
I can offer an initial 30-minute session free of charge. This will give us the opportunity to assess whether we are likely to be able to work well together. In this session we will briefly explore what is causing the client’s distress and consider if Person-Centred counselling is an appropriate approach. Assuming that this goes well, further appointments can be scheduled at a time which suits both the client and myself.
