About me

Are you finding life difficult at the moment? Especially during these difficult times. Do you need to talk to someone? I may be able to help. I am a qualified and experienced Integretive counsellor and can offer you professional help with a wide range of difficulties or emotional distress. I offer a warm, confidential space where you can talk about anything you want and explore emotional difficulties you may be experiencing.

It takes courage taking the first step in making positive changes in your life. I am a qualified and experienced therapeutic counsellor. I work with adults and young people. I am a genuine and warm person and I provide a calm and non-judgemental environment for you to explore, any emotional difficulties you may be experiencing. My aim is to help you by simply providing a much-needed opportunity to be heard and understood.  I know this may be hard for you to make that first call, but it could be the first step towards a more positive and happy future for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma level 4 in Integrative Counselling
  • CRUSE bereavement Care training
  • I volunteer regularly at a youth counselling agency

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including anxiety, low mood or depression, stress, low self esteem, low self confidence, phobias, bereavement or loss, relationship difficulties, past events/trauma, self-harming, bullying……….

Having completed bereavement training, I have worked with CRUSE on a voluntary basis.

As well as seeing private clients I have experience of working with young people in a charitable youth organisation. I have also worked as a counsellor in a secondary school.I continue my development by regularly attending workshops and courses.

Please feel free to ring for an informal chat. I understand that taking the first step towards getting help is often the most difficult. When you are ready, I look forward to hearing from you, if you prefer send me an email. If I am not the right person for you I will do my very best to direct you to where would best suit you.

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.
