I am a Person Centred Therapist by training, I also manage a Computerised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy programme, addressing Anxiety Stress and Depression, deliver training on the Solution Focused approach and many specialist counselling subjects and promote healthy living. I provide support to clients in relationship difficulties, workplace concerns, grief and loss, emotional distress and helping clients to deal with change, transition and trauma.
It’s a very personal decision but you will know when things are not right in your life. It may be that you feel that you cannot share things with friend’s family or work colleagues. Counselling gives a confidential safe space to be able to explore your thoughts and difficulties.
Working globally has given me a very broad experience of working with a wide range of issues across the world and in the UK, in-person face to face, via Zoom video or over the telephone. I am passionate about providing confidential help and support for adult clients who recognise they need assistance, to talk through worries and concerns and provide support to help move to a more balanced and purposeful lifestyle. It’s good to talk! Counselling Helps!
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy with 10 years post qualification experience.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer counselling sessions at a low rate to make counselling more accessible during the pandemic. I offer Zoom Video Counselling at £20 and Telephone appointments at £15 per 50 minutes session. I offer these rates because I do not believe that cost should be a barrier to access counselling. I have concessionary rates for two clients in my weekly counselling schedule which are both currently taken, but I still have capacity at a standard rate . Owing to the pandemic I have suspended face to face sesssions to maintain client safety.
In additional to my low and affordable rates you can expect a robust, thorough and efficient intake process, and on going support where you can see your own progress. I am firmly committed to providing evidence based counselling to ensure the effectiveness of my service and support to my clients.
