Our own thoughts/feelings are unique to us - this inner world can sometimes be self-destructive; negative thoughts or self-doubt. An everyday occurrence or a rollercoaster of conflicting emotions.  This may lead to anxiety/depression and/or confused feelings.

Anxiety/Stress can cause irritability and reduce our ability to cope with the pressures of life. Trauma, Bereavement, relationship issues and family issues are all experiences that can be very difficult and painful to deal with, and we can feel very alone and isolated. Perhaps there is someone to talk to, but they do not fully understand how YOU feel and the effect it may be having on you.

I aim to offer an opportunity; a counselling service in a purpose built room (with toilet facilities) from my home in Oakham, Rutland. I offer face-to-face counselling, either short-term structured or long-term therapy, usually weekly or fortnightly sessions. I can offer daytime & evening appointments, and online sessions.

My approach to counselling is integrative, fundamentally built on the person-centred approach.(there are information pages available on the 'counselling directory' explaining the 'types of therapy'). My aim is to provide a safe environment where your thoughts and feelings are given the time and space to be voiced and heard.

We all experience problems in our lives at some point, whether you may be going through a period of crisis, or perhaps you are hoping to change some self-defeating patterns of thinking and behaviour. When we are troubled we often don't know what type of help we need we just know we need help and struggle to find a way to manage our emotions. Telling someone you know (family/friends) may be difficult because it is personal and private, and they may offer their own opinion and advice, which may be not what you are wanting to hear, you may just want to let your troubles out.

Counselling offers different help; it provides a non-judgmental response, counselling encourages you to work through painful feelings, to grow in self-understanding and confidence, to explore and develop coping strategies by looking at your options.

I am a registered accredited member of BACP, my ethical obligations and duty of care towards both clients and my profession are very important to me.

I work with teens, adults, couples & elders/veterans. I also teach/lecture in counselling and participate in research.
 
I have an Enhanced DBS Certificate.

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.
