About me

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.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

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.
