About me

I believe in helping clients understand their thoughts and feelings, and to provide the necessary 'tools' to equip them throughout life, because life is ever changing and growing.  I provide a safe, comfortable and welcoming space for you to explore your emotions.

Sometimes during therapy you may feel uncomfortable with what is being discussed, however, these are areas of movement, and by being as open, transparent and honest as possible, you could move towards being a lighter and more resilient person.

As an integrative counsellor, there are many ways that we can explore the right therapy for you

Sometimes it is difficult to move forward in life and stay in the present when issues from the past have been suppressed and unheard. I believe you can reconnect with life to find a more peaceful and happier way of being, through therapy.

Member organisations

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.
