About me

My Approach to Counselling

My training and philosophy are Person Centred.

This service seeks to support, encourage and facilitate the exploration and understanding of your thinking processes, feelings and actions to support self-acceptance and development. There is no judgement or criticism, although the process can be challenging at times.

I will work with you towards making those choices, changes or adaptations that are right for you. Your values, preferences and lifestyle will always be respected.

I work with adults, older adults and young people from the age of 13 on a one to one basis.

The Setting

The counselling setting is calm, comfortable, modern and easy to find! Free parking is available.

What will it Cost me?

I offer a free initial 20 minute telephone call. This is an opportunity for us to talk and for you to ask any questions you may have.

The cost of a 50 minute session is £45.00.

Getting in Touch

I offer face to face, online, phone and "Walk & Talk' sessions. If you would like to, please contact me to discuss any of these options and the service available.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
