Over the years, I have gained extensive experience working with and supporting Adults, Young People & Adolescents within a variety of roles & settings. As a trained Mentor/Support Worker and qualified Teacher & Counsellor I have supported individuals with many of life's issues/concerns. Throughout my career I have always wanted to support others and feel that my background has enabled me to offer individuals a breadth of life experience alongside professional knowledge and expertise. I can offer Single session, Brief or Long Term Therapy. Please view my website www.letsworkthroughit.co.uk for further information.
How I work
I aim to support you within the Counselling process, by having a genuine regard for your well-being, and by providing a safe, non-judgemental, confidential environment, where you can openly discuss your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. As a trained counsellor, I will actively listen, engage and work with you, aiming to help you have a better understanding of yourself and others, effectively empowering you to find your own way forward, in a way that you feel is best.
At the core of my work sits a Humanistic Person Centred ethos, paramount for me is the building of the relationship, establishing trust, warmth and providing a safe space underpin my practice. Alongside this as an Integrative Counsellor I am able to offer elements of several theoretical approaches dependent upon your needs, inclusive of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Motivational Interviewing and Transactional Analysis (T.A). I believe "One shoe does not fit all" and that every individual who enters into counselling requires their own individual counselling.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Initial Consultation & Ongoing Therapy £45.00 for individual 1-1 sessions.
Throughout our time together, I will regularly review our work to ensure your support needs are met.
When I work
As a Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I regularly attend training (Continued Professional Development). This allows me to heighten my own awareness on current up to date training, in turn, allowing my client's awareness to also be heightened.
I also hold full DBS clearance.
