It's Time For You!
Are you always there for everyone else, and now need someone to be there for you? Have you suffered a loss or bereavement which you are struggling to process because you feel so overwhelmed? Are you feeling low and anxious? Whatever difficulties you are facing, my job is not to diagnose you, give you advice, or tell you how to fix things. My job is to be by your side as we explore ways to help you find your own answers.
I follow a Humanistic approach and commit to working with you at your own pace in a non-judgemental way, to seeing you as the unique individual that you are, and to building a trusting relationship with you where you can feel really heard. It’s your space. Often the most healing gift we can receive is to feel fully listened to.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Humanistic Counsellor. I graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Humanistic Counselling, after achieving a Diploma of Higher Education in Humanistic Counselling and Level 4 Certificate in Counselling Skills.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) - BACP Registration No 384125.
I commit to regular Continued Professional Development (CPD) to keep my skills and knowledge up to date.
All my working roles have involved caring for others and listening to how they view their world. I enjoy helping people work towards a more hopeful future.
I currently work with a national bereavement charity and have extensive training and experience working with loss and grief. Loss comes in many forms - loss of health, identity, job, home, relationship.. all of which can be recent or historic and result in us coping in unhelpful ways. I can help you untangle your feelings, to help you see a clearer way forward.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
