About me

Hi.  Thank you for reading my profile.  I am a BACP accredited and registered counsellor and a qualified supervisor. I have 17 years experience counselling in various settings such as schools, universities, employee assistance programmes and in private practice too. I have an up to date enhanced DBS check.

I work with young people and adults with a wide range of issues including generalised anxiety, stress, depression, feeling sad, social anxiety, relationship problems,  bereavement, low self esteem etc.  I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which you can explore personal or difficult issues that you may be struggling with.

With the impact of Coronavirus over the last 18 months, I am aware that a lot of people are really struggling with generalised anxiety, social anxiety, health anxiety, and increasingly the effects of Long Covid too. I have adapted my practice over this time as I want counselling to be accessible to all who may need it.  I am qualified to offer online and phone counselling and hope that if meeting in person feels too difficult , that you may feel able to access counselling online or on the phone with me.  Offering online counselling also means that you do not need to be in my locality to access counselling with me.  I am also seeing clients face to face too. I have a risk assessment in place and Covid guidelines that I follow, to ensure that anyone who wants to meet with me face to face is doing so in the safest way. 

I can work with you on a short-term solution focused basis, as well as an open-ended longer term basis to enable us to explore personal challenges at a deeper level. I work in an Integrative way which means I use theories and concepts from different therapeutic models - recognising that you are an individual who needs a way of working with, that is individual to you and the issues you are presenting with.

I understand it's not easy taking the first step in asking for support.  I hope to make it as smooth and easy as possible for you.  Please get in touch if you want to find out more about how I work, and whether that works for you. Thanks, Becky
