Positive Mindset Counselling

About me

Having trained as a integrative counsellor I mainly work in a person centred way, which means I listen to you and help to guide you, exploring your emotions and past experiences. However, if you feel stuck or have so much going on for you, you don’t know where to start, I may use more creative methods. Each session will be tailored towards your needs.

I fully believe in positive psychology and will help you focus on the positives aspects of  your life, and less on the negatives.  It has been proven that thinking positively improves your happiness, wellbeing, health and can enhance your personal strengths.  I will help guide you to think more positively whilst still exploring your worries, traumas and issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor with a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.  I am registered with the BACP and I have vast experience of working within a college environment dealing with young people.  I have previously worked with Cancer Support helping clients deal with either Cancer themselves or helping their families. I am currently working with Staffordshire Bereavement and Loss, and also Re-Solv, a solvent abuse charity.  I am also currently working with a large organisation to help counsel their staff during this  particularly stressful time.

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.

Accredited register membership

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Key details

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.

Our new premises now offers disabled access in relaxing premises
