About me

Recognising that you may need help through counselling can be both courageous and daunting. It can be difficult to reach out and find the right person for you to confide in, who really listens without criticism or streams of unwanted advice. I therefore understand the importance to offer a preliminary session or even a free brief telephone call where we can discuss what you’d like from therapy and whether we can work together, before making any sort of commitment.

I am a qualified and registered Integrative Psychotherapist, which means I have trained in varied schools of thought/modalities in the psychotherapy field. However, fundamentally, I believe it is the relationship that we create in our sessions which is most essential to help you on the road to self-discovery and change. I, therefore, aim to create a non-judgmental and confidential space for us to explore within.

I believe that our past and even our most recent experiences shape and influence us. Sometimes these can be quite difficult to manage or to even fully comprehend. I believe that such difficult experiences don't need to hold us back. Through therapy we can try to understand how they might affect us by unravelling them, working through our feelings around them, in order to become more self aware and to make different, healthier choices for ourselves.

I work with clients on an open-ended basis; it is totally dependant upon what you need at the time of you seeking therapy. Our work can range from anything between six sessions (short-term) to two years or more (long-term). A session lasts 50 minutes and takes place once a week, usually on the same day and time.

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.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. 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.
