About me

I offer a calm and confidential space that allows us to consider what might be troubling you. Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed? It might be that you are struggling to cope with a recent crisis or looking to resolve longstanding issues, both of which I can help with. It can be enormously helpful to share your thoughts and feelings with someone who is impartial, understanding and informed.

What I offer:

+ 12 Week Short-term Time Limited Therapy:

This involves agreeing on a goal and working within this focus.

+ Long-term Open Ended Therapy:

Different themes are allowed to emerge helping us to build a deeper understanding of what lies behind thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour.

Many clients opt for the latter therapy, especially where the source of the problem isn’t clear.

Initial Consultation:

After your initial contact we will arrange a consultation.  A consultation may last between 60 – 90 minutes. In this time we can talk about why you have come to therapy and whether I am the right person to help you.

Ongoing therapy:

Thereafter, sessions will take place once a week at an agreed time and on the same day of the week. Each session will last 50 minutes.

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.
