About me

Qualified counselling in a safe, easily accessible clinic in the heart of Rochford Square.

I have experience of working with the common reasons for seeking counselling: Anxiety, General Anxiety Disorders, Child related issues, Bereavement, Financial worries, Friendship issues, Loneliness, Loss, Relationship worries, Sadness, Stress, Trauma, Parenting worries and work with children and young people.

I believe that by establishing a professional relationship based on trust and acceptance, you will be reminded that you have worth and that this renewed sense of self can give you the confidence to live your life more fully whatever has caused you to feel the way you do.

Counselling can help you to overcome emotional issues, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relationship challenges, self-esteem issues, low mood, loneliness, loss, changes and much more.

By letting me sit with you whilst your world is dark, for whatever reason,  together we can help you find your strength to be your own light at the end of the tunnel.  I believe in you and your unique ability to move forward even when you don't.  Whether you be 8 or 80 counselling can help.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been in private practice for the last 8 years having studied counselling at University gaining a First Class Honours Degree along with a Post Graduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision. I am Accredited with the Foundation for Infant loss and have a Level 5 Teaching qualification. I am an Accredited Professional Member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) which means you can be assured that I have an ethical code that I must work to.

I have experience with parents, carers, children and teens as well as teachers, teaching assistants and people with issues around self-esteem and self worth.

I supervise trainee counsellors, counsellors and teaching staff.

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.

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.
