About me

You have taken a huge step in seeking support, now it is finding the right counsellor for you to make a connection with and feel comfortable to share your personal issues in a safe, confidential setting.  My work with clients is based on the values of compassion, authenticity and kindness. I enjoy meeting individuals and couples who are invested in their therapy as I work alongside them, to support them to make the changes they want whilst honouring their independence to live a life that is of value and has meaning for them.

I have worked with many individuals and couples who have had a variety of personal issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma, abuse, addiction, relationships, parenting, self-esteem and more.  Counselling can strengthen you to grow through challenging experiences by increasing your self-awareness. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for you to be with another person that isn't in your immediate circle who is able to offer you another perspective or additional support.

Confidentiality: To ensure open exploration of the concerns that have brought you to therapy, I maintain confidentiality in accordance with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions www.bacp.co.uk. I am a registered member of the BACP, and I am committed to complying with this framework as part of the terms and conditions of my membership.

I also offer online counselling. Online counselling allows technology to add flexibility to the counselling process without reducing the one-to-one human dimension that lies at the heart of therapy. I am fully trained/qualified in this way of working and offer video (over a secure and encrypted platform), email, instant messenger or telephone sessions that makes counselling much more accessible to you. During this pandemic, or for those living in remote locations or perhaps housebound, if you have internet access, physical isolation is no longer a barrier to accessing professional counselling services.

If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

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.
