About me

Hi and welcome. I truly believe we are all unique, need different things at different times in our lives and travel different paths to get us to where we are today. When you become stuck in your journey and find it hard to get going, my passion will be to empower you to explore where you have been, how you got there, what is keeping you there and help you find new ways to deal with life’s challenges. With the belief we hold the internal resources for change I will use different counselling approaches and mindfulness techniques to help you understand your journey and enhance your mental wellbeing.

My practice is based on genuiness and acceptance and I will offer you a warm and understanding approach to allow a therapeutic relationship to be formed. I will work with you at your pace, introducing different approaches and techniques, depending on your need. This will help us create a safe space for you to talk and allow us to embark on the counselling journey together.
 

Training, qualifications & experience

As an integrative counsellor I have supported clients with different issues including domestic abuse, narcissistic relationships, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, self-confidence, unhelpful thinking patterns and relationship breakdowns. I have also completed training with CRUSE Bereavement Care and have supported clients through grief.  I will integrate CBT, psychodynamic and humanistic approaches and mindfulness techniques into counselling depending on your need.

I completed the  Foundation Degree in Counselling and am registered member with BACP.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

Free car parking at the premises.
