Adult, young people and Couples Counsellor

About me

I am a committed, caring, genuine and friendly person with a great passion and belief in the value of connecting with people. I believe in building a great therapeutic relationship and helping my client to find the best way forward for them. I have ten years experience and work with adults and teenagers in a person Centred way.

How do I work?
I work in a non-directive way in a safe and relaxed space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings and find some meaning in whatever is going on for you. I believe in a persons individual potential to know what is best for them. You are the expert on YOU. It is an opportunity to talk about the problems you are experiencing with a trained person who listens and cares.

Why see a counsellor?
"Are you struggling with anxiety, depression or something you cant quite identify?" Talking with a counsellor can help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings, help you feel less alone, lost, stuck and feel more confident and in control of your life. You will be listened to without judgement and be heard with respect and compassionate understanding.

What happens next?
I work with clients on a short and long term basis. The initial session is an opportunity to discover if my service and me are what you are looking for. We then agree to work for a certain amount of sessions.

I welcome you to call or text me on: 07415 037725 or click here to send me an email.

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.

Further information

I am passionate about the power and value of talking therapy and feel very strongly this form of treatment should be more widely available for everyone. The therapeutic relationship that builds offers a unique opportunity to rediscover your personal worth, strength and power to connect to a more authentic you with the overall effect of feeling less alone, confused, depressed and stuck.
