About me

Counselling sessions with me offer an hour each week that’s devoted to you - to talk openly to someone impartial about whatever is on your mind. To be heard, understood and supported, without fear of judgment and in confidence.

Between Us Counselling gives you a safe space to reflect and explore your world. Helping you take a ‘helicopter’ view of your life and your relationships, see yourself from a new perspective and so choose a way forward.

You will always be the one who knows the most about you.  So my approach is Person-Centred Therapy.  My focus is on the person rather than the experience, so that together we can understand and become aware of the feelings that are feeding into the behaviours. These behaviours may be anxiety, self-worth, triggering due to trauma and so forth. 

​This aims to help you develop the resources within yourself to grow and change your life.

​We will work together to help you find ways to heal, build greater strength, improve relationships, feel happier and be more authentically yourself.

If, at any time and for any reason, either of us feel that this way of working is not appropriate, we can discuss it and if necessary, I will recommend another professional counsellor who may be more suited to your needs.

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.

Face to face appointments (wheelchair accessible) are available Monday pm and Tuesday am/pm.
