About me

I have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2004, mainly in the private sector and currently also with a small EPA portfolio.

In my experience, once a client has taken the often difficult step of getting in touch and started to talk about what is troubling them or holding them back, they experience a strong feeling of relief at being able to confide in another person, the counsellor. In a safe and supportive environment where the client feels in control, it becomes possible to confront and sort out the various issues and challenges and to move forward.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a post graduate diploma in humanistic counselling and psychotherapy.   I am a member of BACP and so abide by its code of practice and my work is supervised by an accredited member of BACP to ensure my professional standards.

I have worked in an international environment and am sensitive to cultural isolation and differences. I have a good working knowledge of French and Welsh.

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.

Accessibility

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.
