About me

                        Is it hard to talk about your problems with people around you?

Barbara is an experienced and supportive counsellor assisting Individuals, Couples and Families to overcome life’s struggle and help them have a more fulfilling relationship with themselves and others
Barbara is an Accredited RELATE Practitioner and a ex College counsellor.
She sees young people from the age of 16, and help them deal with anger issues caused by family breakdown, bullying or an increasingly pressurised environment.

The work is collaborative and confidential; short term or longer term, depending on her clients’ needs. She offers an integrative approach in a non-blaming, non-judgmental context, supporting her clients to explore the best suited solutions to achieve their therapeutic goal.

Her work with her clients explore the following steps.

Step 1: Why do I feel like this? Exploring the roots of the problem,becoming aware of your unwanted thoughts and responsive unhelpful behaviours

Step 2: What are my options? Through conversation, you will feel empowered to shift from a position of being stuck and feeling hopeless to a position where you have a choice to change or to accept things can't change.

Step 3: The final phase is to start thinking differently, controlling your unwanted thoughts, behaviours. Therapy will give new tools that will help you choose to think, act, interact in a new more fulfilling way.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
