About me

I am a warm down-to-earth Therapeutic Counsellor, who puts the client and their specific needs right at the centre of our work together. I look forward to working with you if you feel we would be suited.

I am fully qualified as a professional counsellor and so:

  • am a Registered Member of BACP;
  • am an Accredited Member of The National Counselling Society;
  • have a full Professional Indemnity Insurance;
  • and hold a DBS.

My initial counselling training was in the humanistic existential approach, but my way of working has evolved with additional training methods and experience. I have counselled adults in both inner-city and rural environments, and have worked in generic counselling agencies and in charities such as MIND and CRUSE.

In addition to my private practice, I work as a Bereavement Counsellor, and also as a Specialist Cancer Counsellor, for the NHS.

Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked with students and lecturers in the university sector, and with patients in the NHS.

Training, qualifications & experience

My counselling qualifications are:

* Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Humanistic Existential);

* BSc(Hons) Reflective Therapeutic Practice (The Metanoia Institute, London);

* Diploma in NLP (Health);

* Certificate in Awareness in Bereavement Care;

* Certificate in Focusing Skills, and am currently training to be a Practitioner with the British  Focusing Association.


Additional training:

- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT);

- Motivational Interviewing (MI);

- Mental Health First Aid;

- Applied Suicide Intervention Skills;

- Working with Adult Survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

Additional information:

I have a number of higher degree and post-graduate qualifications related to professional health-care subjects, and university teaching and learning. I am also a fellow of The Higher Education Academy.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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.

NCS

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Any accessibility issues can be discussed before our initial meeting.
