COVID-19 RESPONSE - ONLINE / TELEPHONE WORK ONLY JUST NOW
I understand how scary it can be approaching a counsellor, admitting that you need help... it need not be with me as I walk with you gently through the process. It's easy to begin, just phone, text or email me and we can work together to find a convenient time for us to hold our first session together. When we have this session we will discuss what you want to get from the counselling, how often we should see each other and any other details you would like to know. I'm happy to answer any questions even if you don't come for therapy.
I became a counsellor due to suffering from my own difficult life experiences and I always thought counselling was for others who needed it, not me, but I was wrong. It was a process that brought me from beyond back into being. I now firmly believe in it and I can give others the opportunity to experience how it feels to be able to talk to someone who cares, and will listen.
So don't be afraid to give it a try with me. I can offer one to one sessions, or use ZOOM, these will be in a confidential, non judgmental, empathic space where you can share your difficulties. I offer you the opportunity to ask anything you would like to and to explore and decide if you are ready to continue with a therapeutic relationship.
Also have now added Gizmo to my practice - A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - fully insured and allowing me to offer Animal Assistance Therapy.

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.
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.
