About me

Welcome!

Life doesn't always go the way we envisaged it to be. We encounter experiences such as relationships, work, loss, trauma, health-related and identity issues. All of which can create stress/anxiety, low mood and/or depression.

You don't have to experience these feelings alone!

My approach to life and therapy is Person-Centred, that the client is the central part of the therapeutic relationship, your thoughts and feelings are the focus. My approach is neither directive or self-opinionated, believing that everyone can be empowered, working together to facilitate insight, and to discover a way forward.

I provide a therapeutic safe space, whereby we can explore any issues you are experiencing, in a non-judgemental and confidential way. Working together, at a pace that suits you and your needs. That will enable you thorough reflection, a scope for change and understanding.

Training, qualifications & experience

Principal Qualification: Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Certificate: Counselling and Psychotherapy Level 4, Focused Quality Provision.

I am experienced in both short-term brief therapy and long term counselling, with all life experiences such as Depression, Anxiety, Bereavement, Addictions, Body Image, Identity and Stress related issues.

My work experience includes working within a university setting and local charity organisations. I currently work both privately and within the NHS services, such as IAPT. Adults (18+).

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.
