About me

I am a Person Centred Counsellor and Supervisor with 16 years experience. I have had my own practice for the past 10 years. With regards to counselling, I have both private clients and work for a number of national EAPs (counselling agencies) who contract with companies and refer employees to me. I work with both long term clients and short term (up to 8 /10 sessions). I believe that the person centred model, built on the personal relationship, in which I offer the Core Conditions of Empathy, Unconditional Acceptance, and Transparency, enables a client to access their feelings, find their own solutions and develop their potential as a human being. I will also use cognitive based strategies where necessary,as part of therapy, but always in negotiation with the client. I also believe in the integration of mind and body in terms of the therapeutic process,especially with trauma.

I have experience in working with issues such as depression,anxiety.low self esteem. abuse, trauma, relationships, work stress, and bereavement. I also work with couples.

As a supervisor I work with both qualified counsellors and counselling trainees from university and college courses.

I am available during the day and evenings at my home address in Preston, and during the day only at a room in Lytham St Annes. I am happy to discuss any aspect of my work. including a free 30 min introductory chat, in person.

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.

Further information

In recent years I have been especially interested in trauma, both one off incidents and multiple ie developmental trauma. The training I have has enabled me to understand more of the integration of mind and body in the healing process of trauma therapy. Working with somatic (bodily) experiencing in various presenting client issues can be an essential part of the therapy.The work of Peter Levine and Babette Rothschild have been important in this respect.

I also have specific interest in depression,anxiety and relationship issues inc couples

At present I am awaiting the result of my Accreditation application with BACP

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.
