About me

A warm welcome to my profile 🌸 

If you or someone you know if struggling with life, it can be really useful to speak to someone that’s completely impartial. 

I offer a safe, warm, confidential and a not one shoe fits all approach to counselling and supervision. 

For me therapeutic support starts with building a safe and trusting relationship, it is after this is established the work can take place. I understand putting your trust in someone is a big step but it’s an important step for therapy to work. 

Please also be mindful that not every therapist works the same and although we all follow a strict ethical guidelines we all work very differently, be curious when starting with a new therapist and ask questions as you need to make sure you find the right therapist for you and your needs. 

I like to offer a reduced fee for an assessment session so that we can ensure suitability.
It’s important you are supported to the best of the therapist ability.

It’s a great advantage when looking for private therapy as you have the freedom to choose your therapist rather than being allocated a therapist.

Always try to go with your intuition and gut feeling when searching for a therapist or supervisor. 

Thank you for looking at my profile and good luck on this new journey.

Member organisations

BACP

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

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).

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
