About me

My practice is currently full until mid-November 2020. Only availability is:

  • Wednesday @ 9am & 5pm
  • Friday @ 9am & 4pm

I understand that life at times can feel challenging, and it can take only one thing to knock you off balance emotionally and mentally! Hello, my name is Davina and thank you for taking the time out to view my profile. I am the founder of Time in Counselling, and I am here to support your healing process to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be!

I have an ongoing interest in working with women from the BME community; specialising in childhood abuse, sexual abuse, trauma-related concerns and relationships difficulties. I understand the intricacy that culture, race, gender, ethnicity, and spiritually can have on an individual.

As much as I believe that knowledge is important to help others. I also understand the transparency behind having first-hand experiences, as I believe that's where the true connection can be blossom. Working interculturally allows me to gain a deeper understanding of your subjective experiences and how it relates specifically to you, which enables an authentic holistic healing process to take place.

It's time to take off that 'superwomen mask', put your load down, remove all labels. It is time to set some time aside for you, time to take some Time In!

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.

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.
