Welcome to my page. You may have made a start, and hopefully a new journey into self-discovery, healing and for personal growth and development. I am a person/client centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist, which means the session is all about you and your agenda, after all, you are the expert on yourself. I use a non-directional approach, which allows you to see yourself consciously and to enable you to explore your innermost thoughts, feelings and issues. This, in time, will hopefully allow you to process and work towards self-discovery and healing, enabling you to cope successfully with life's ups and downs. I have worked with many clients, listening and supporting them through difficult issues, allowing them to search deep inside to help find a solution that will lead them to a more positive way of living and coping with difficult issues. It will also help enable the client to accept that it is ok to be different, after all, we are all unique individuals.
My support will offer you a safe and confidential environment. I work with a recognised professional and ethical framework, maintaining specific boundaries which will be discussed in the initial meeting, in the form of a contract/working agreement. I will accept and support you as a unique individual despite differences we may have between us. I will approve of you as my client.
I have worked voluntarily at a counselling agency for 3 years. I have had many clients with diverse backgrounds, cultures and issues.
I have experience with pastoral work in my local community, supporting the elderly, disabled and lonely people.
I have a leadership role working with children from the ages of 3 to 17 years of age, again in the local community.

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.
