About me

Hello and Welcome. Counselling is a powerful tool that helps to lift or elevate ourselves from trauma, depression, anxiety or a loss. Additionally, it brings us an increased awareness of ourselves, we really get to know who we are, learning to like those interesting, complex and sometimes wounded parts.

I have been an integrative counsellor for almost 20 years and a couples counsellor for 5 years. I enjoy working with clients to bring understanding about your patterns and behaviours. Offering you a space to try out new ones, understand and improve your relationships, and explore trauma and wounds at a pace that meets your needs.

As a counsellor, I offer a warm relationship, building rapport and trust. Through our working relationship, you will be able to explore your problems in a safe space, allowing you to grow and expand your personal understanding of yourself.

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.

Works with a few clients low cost/concession

I enjoy meeting and working with a large range of people but understand that counselling can feel like an expensive investment in oneself. I do not want to exclude anyone from receiving the help and support that they need and for this reason, I can prepare a payment plan that fits into your financial constraints - spreading the cost of your sessions over additional months, with no hidden charges or interest.

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.
