It is so important to feel comfortable and safe with the person you reach out to when feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. I am a qualified practitioner (BSc Psychology & Dip. Couns.) and provide the environment where you can talk to someone who is supportive, non-judgemental and respectful of your difficulties and experience, so just give me a call and we can work through this together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified practitioner with experience working with teenagers, young people and adults working with both Heads Together and MIND. My qualifications include a BSc in Psychology (Honours), Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, hold enhanced disclosure clearing to work with children and am an Individual Member of the BACP. As such, I am committed to providing high standards of ethical and moral practice in a safe environment which means I work with integrity, confidentiality and put you at the centre of all my work.
My approach is integrative which means I tailor the way I work to suit you personally and, in turn, allow you to make the positive changes in your life. I can work with you individually or with your family to help understand the issues that you are facing and to find a way to work through them. I understand this is a difficult step to take and offer a free no-obligation initial consultation to find out if this is the help and support you need without having to feel committed and without fear of judgement or criticism.
Taking this first step:
A free no-obligation 15 minute consultation: this will allow us to discuss your issues and find out how I can help and if you feel I am the right person for you.
Should you wish to proceed we can work on a long or short term basis. We can review progress to make sure we keep on track to achieve your goals and to consider any other issues that may become apparent during that time.
My practice is situated in a quiet, peaceful area with parking space. However, if you prefer, I also work online and via telephone sessions if you feel this better suits you.
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.
