About me

I am a Person Centred Counsellor with experience in CBT and work with an eclectic approach that best suits my client.

Our everyday lives and experiences can have such an impact on our mental health and sometimes it is helpful to be able to say what's on our mind out loud.  To be able to explore the feelings that are deep inside.  Counselling offers a space to be able to do this in confidence and without judgement.  I offer you that space.  I don't give advice and offer active listening to help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings.

I offer face to face as well as online counselling.

If you would like to have a chat about counselling sessions give me a call on 07763842524 or email me.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
