Thank you for viewing my profile. I know how difficult it can be to ask for help when you are struggling, but life is hard at times and having someone to talk to can really help.
The model of counselling I use is called Person Centred. This may not be a term you are familiar with so here is a brief explanation of what to expect when you come to see me. The work is led by the client which means the client brings what is troubling them and we work through this together in the session. My role is to accompany the client, helping explore emotions, themes and patterns and grow in self awareness. The emphasis is placed on the therapeutic relationship, where you can expect to feel heard and accepted without judgement.
Typically Person Centred counselling is suitable for a wide range of client issues and my experience is varied.
If you would like to find out more about my service contact me either by phone or email, I am always happy to have a brief talk on the phone before setting up a first appointment.
Thanks again for visiting my profile,

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.
