About me

To me counselling is about carving out a place for yourself to discuss and work through anything that you feel is stopping you feeling at your happiest and best. For some this may be feelings of depression, anxiety or relationship troubles. For others it can be harder to vocalise but more of a knowing that things aren't right and you're not ok. Life can be overwhelming and it can become habit to brush our needs to the side to satisfy everything that is pressing on our time and energy. It can be hard to make ourselves the priority. Counselling is a kindness you gift yourself. It provides you with the safe, confidential space you need and deserve to be heard and supported.

This means that I am here to listen to you and work with you to discuss, reflect, explore and empower you to achieve the changes you would like to see in your life. I provide a non-directive talking therapy. We will work with whatever you bring at a time and pace that suits you.

All of my work is underpinned by the BACP ethical framework. This means I work compassionately and reflectively to always strive for your best benefit.

On receiving your initial enquiry I find it best to have a quick confidential chat by your preferred medium (telephone or e-mail) This helps break the ice a little before we first meet, gives you a chance to ask any questions you may have and from there we can book in our first session.

During the corona virus outbreak I will be offering face to face counselling and online appointments through Zoom.

Training, qualifications & experience

Since 2016 I have been working locally for a national childrens charity supporting mothers across a spectrum of issues ranging from overwhelm, depression, anxiety, domestic abuse and substance abuse.

I have also spent time working for West Cumbria Carers supporting people through their work supporting others. This has involved helping people who are struggling with isolation, loss and grief, depression, debt crisis and anxiety.

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.
