About me

I recognise that it can feel difficult to know if counselling is right for you. You may be feeling nervous about beginning therapy or unsure of how counselling could help. To alleviate some of this uncertainty, I offer a Free 30-minute telephone consultation; this gives you an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about counselling as well as an opportunity for us both to talk about how we could work together.

By booking a free, friendly telephone consultation, it gives us the chance to build a rapport, and helps in supporting you to explore your options in counselling.

Counselling is a 'talking therapy' which aims to bring about understanding, change, and healing. Therapy can help with issues such as Anxiety, Stress, Panic attacks, Low self esteem, Depression & Low Mood, Bereavement, Loss, Relationship problems. This is not an exhaustive list, please call to discuss your individual needs.

Even amongst close friends and family, some thoughts and feelings can be difficult to express or share. Often, the ability to talk about these difficult feelings and experiences in confidentiality with a professional, independent person, free from any judgement, can be key to starting your journey of change. Contact me via telephone, email or visit my website for further details or to arrange your Free 30min consultation.

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.
