About me

"In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity." Albert Einstein

ONLINE COUNSELLING SESSIONS £35.00 -  YOUR MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS

Contacting a counsellor can sometimes feel daunting but at the same time, it may be one of the most rewarding things you do. Counselling can help if you are finding life a struggle; finding life meaningless or your relationships empty. Maybe you have suffered bereavement or feel constantly sad or anxious and feel out of control or worrying about everything.

My role is to help you make sense of what is happening and not just label your experience. I believe the key to success is through the relationship of therapist and client and I work towards a carefully bounded relationship where you can feel safe, tell your story and really be listened to. I offer empathy and a space where you can feel valued and talk in comfortable surroundings.

Specialities - anxiety, depression, low moods and those suffering with eczema.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

NCS

National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

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.
