About me

About me


As a qualified counsellor I have over 24 years of extensive experience, working in a wide range of fields. In my practise I use a theoretical approach, that is integrative and strongly under pinned with CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy).
My experience with clients includes: working with all levels of trauma, present and historical, domestic violence, (emotional and physical), bereavement and loss, self-harm, thoughts of suicide, anxiety, low mood, depression, anger management, guilt, anxiety, stress, depression and isolation.


Using integrative approach, allows us to find the most effective, and personal approach for each individual. This ensures that each session, is tailored to the persons and their unique situation. From experience, this in turn leads to the most effective and positive results for each client.


I offer a professional, confidential and empathic counselling service for individual clients, couples and families. This is to enable the individual to explore and gain a clear perception of their own unique situation. Subsequently enabling the client/s to gain a true and full understanding of their problems, situation and experiences.
This subsequently allows those thoughts, feelings and experiences to be fully resolved.

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.
