About me

Hi, my name is Alicia. I am a fully qualified counsellor who specialises in working with Children and Young People. I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I feel extremely passionate about creating a confidential, safe space for children and young people to feel comfortable enough to open up and share their problems. When we talk about our thoughts and feelings, they can become less overwhelming and scary.

For me, my experience mainly comes from working with children, young people, and families in various settings, such as nurseries, and primary and secondary schools and providing extra care and support to these groups. I have experienced working with several charities such as Help! Counselling, Women’s Self Injury support and Mencap.

Due to working with this age group, I have been fortunate enough to have conversations with many children and young people about their experiences and had an insight into the many difficulties that children are facing. It is important for them to be able to access the support they need through these challenging times.

As a Relational Integrative counsellor, I care deeply about the relationship I establish with the people who come to see me for therapy. I see each client as an individual and sensitively tailor different approaches to each person’s specific needs. My focus is to offer a safe space for clients to explore their own stories to make sense of it and for them to feel recognised and valued.

If you would like to find out more, please visit my website or complete my contact form through my website where I will get back to you as soon as possible.

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.
