Sometimes life can be difficult, it can feel overwhelming when asking for help and support, so I welcome you to my profile.
Common causes of distress are often:
- Self worth
- Relationship issues
- Work Related Issues
- and many more
Some people feel disconnected to themselves and the world around them without knowing the cause. Counselling can be a way to unearth these disconnections.
I am a qualified person-centred counsellor, who believes in creating a space where you can feel truly heard without judgement.
We can build an open and trusting therapeutic relationship, collaboratively exploring thoughts, feelings and senses for a greater understanding of self.
I have worked with a diverse range of clients enabling me to gain valuable experience. I work with adults, young people and children from the ages of 6 years.
When working with young people and children, I may work in a more creative way, adapting to each unique individual. Communicating our thoughts and feelings can be hard, creative activities can help channel expression gently approaching inner feelings.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked with adults at St.Wilfreds Hospice in a bereavement and loss focused counselling role.
I worked as a young people and children counsellor within The Seahorse Project (within St.Wilfreds Hospice). Working with young people and children from the ages 6-18 years.
Alongside my private practice I am a volunteer counsellor for Macmillan Cancer charity.
I am a registered member (Reg. No. 387812) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I hold professional insurances and am registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO).
I am DBS enhanced checked.
I hold Fdsc in person-centred counselling (University of Brighton).
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 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.
