About me

Welcome I am a qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist offering online counselling service via skype for clients experiencing distressing events and feelings that seem to have no solution in sight.  I work with various issues including anxiety, bereavement, bullying at work, couples, depression,  loneliness, low self-esteem and social anxiety.

I work to establish a therapeutic relationship with you to provide an opportunity for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, at your own pace, safely, confidentially and in a non-judgemental way.  In the comfort of your own home or office most importantly you are listened to.  

I can work short term on solution focused therapy or long term allowing the session to come to a natural ending.

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.

Further information

I work in the privacy of my home using skype to work with my clients.  I can also use Zoom, What's Up, Telegram and Telephone.

I ask my clients to create a separate space for our sessions.  At the end of each session return the space created back to it's original form.   This allows you to recognise the session has started and ended.  

If this cannot be done ensure your in a comfortable position sitting up with your back supported. 

Sessions at the office move away from your desk/workstation.  If this is not possible try sitting in a different position.
