About me

Are you struggling with a difficulty in your life? You might be feeling overwhelmed and unable to move forward. Or perhaps you find it difficult to define your problem?

Hello, I'm Christine. Thank you for visiting my profile page.

You may be thinking of seeking help but don’t know where to start.
I am an experienced integrative counselling therapist and I work using a range of traditional and contemporary models of psychotherapy including CBT and Mindfulness.

I work with those who may be living with feelings of sadness, loss or dissatisfaction with life. I will listen to you without judgement and work with you in understanding yourself better. Therapy can help in finding new ways of thinking and feeling about life’s events, enabling you to move on in your life.

Most people experience emotional difficulties at some point in their lives. People seek therapy for a wide range of issues including depression and anxiety, stress, unresolved issues from the past, feeling unable to move on in life, traumatic experiences, low self esteem or relationship difficulties.

A safe and confidential place where you can talk about your difficulties can bring a sense of relief, while offering the possibility of lasting change.

The areas I work in include:

  • Depression, stress and anxiety

  • Loss and bereavement

  • Difficulties with relationships and intimacy

  • Anger issues

  • Traumatic experiences

  • Unresolved issues from the past

  • Feeling unable to move on in life

  • Feeling stuck in unwanted patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
