About me


Coved-19 update - I am continuing to work during this period of restrictions using online platforms such as zoom, Skype, WhatsApp depending on individual preference, as well as by telephone for those preferring audio calls.

At times life can be difficult and we can feel stressed, anxious and overwhelmed by our experiences, situations and relationships. By understanding why you think, feel and behave as you do you can then start to make positive changes leading to an increase in peace, contentment and happiness. Counselling is a unique relationship built on trust and honesty that can help you to understand more about yourself as well as find solutions to the things you are finding difficult

I have 13 years experience of working within counselling to bring about positive changes in mood and behaviour. My approach to counselling means that I can be flexible in the way that I work with you depending on your preferences and personal goals. I am trained in Integrative Counselling and this means I combine different approaches depending on your needs. My approach to counselling combines Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic and Person Centred Therapy as well as Mindfulness.

If you would like to find out more about the services I offer please visit my website. If you would like to book an appointment or speak with me to see if you feel we could work together please 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.
