What to expect from counselling:
“What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly.” Carl Rogers.
Thank you for visiting my profile, I hope I can answer some questions you may have about the therapeutic process.
I am currently working online offering sessions via zoom or phone for whatever may suit you in these challenging times.
Many of us are suffering additional anxiety at present, due to the current situation and counselling can offer some valuable space and time to address these issues and it allows you to find a balance in your life.
Finding the right counsellor can help you find adapted and more enriching ways of experiencing life. Compassion in therapy is at the heart of my work, I aim to walk alongside you offering the non judgemental support and warmth that allows you to look at some areas of life that may not be working so well for you right now.
It is important to feel a connection with your therapist and with this in mind, I offer an initial half hour phone session, without charge, to ensure that you know what to expect and are able to ask any questions that you may have about the counselling process.
I am a fully qualified integrative therapist and I offer an understanding, non judgemental, private space, to work alongside you in order to try to get a healthier emotional perspective and find some peace in an often chaotic world. I have experience in a variety of settings and with an array of issues.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
