About us

Welcome to our profile and well done for taking that brave, first initial step and reaching out for support.

You maybe struggling with relationships, feel depressed or suffer from anxiety, or you maybe struggling with a bereavement or just don't feel yourself.

As your counsellor, we will provide a safe and confidential space to enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings. We can either work with you in a person centred way or use a technique which we specialise in known as drawing and talking therapy. This technique works with the unconscious mind in a creative way. This technique is ideal for when you have difficulty in putting words to your thoughts & feelings. It is especially good for children who have additional needs, e.g. ASD, OCD, anxiety and other issues.

As well as being friendly and a supportive practitioners, we work ethically within the BACP guidelines and we will always have your best interests at the heart of all therapy sessions. We both work in an integrative way as every client is unique, We adapt our therapy style to what will best suit the client.

Training, qualifications & experience

We hold a BA (Hons)in Counselling and have been trained to work has an integrative counsellor, which means we adapt our way of working with what suits the client and their needs. This maybe CBT, Person Centred, using Drawing and Talking Therapy to name a few.

We have additional training in the form of CPD, in working with fears, anxiety, depression, safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, play therapy, sand play and hold the advanced diploma in Drawing and Talking Therapy.

We have experience working with bereavement and end of life where we both volunteer in a local hospice. We have both worked in school environments with primary and senior school children. I also volunteer for Samaritans as a listener and have carried out face to face work with clients.

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.
