Hi due to the current worrying time we find ourselves in, I would like to say I am still accepting new clients offering phone and video sessions via zoom or Skype due to these uncertain times of isolation for those dealing with any feelings that you may be struggling with.
I attended counselling myself which feels very differently to talking to friends and family. Having a safe environment enabled me to be open with my counsellor and with myself and work through my problems which led to shifts in the way I felt and thought. Having a natural desire to want to help people and for them to feel heard the way I felt heard with my counsellor encouraged me to want to train as a counsellor and work with others to support them on their journey. I believe if given the right conditions, environment and therapeutic support anyone can overcome and survive their personal difficulties to enable them to cultivate a strong and resilient sense of self and personal wellbeing.
I am passionate about the approach I use and the challenge of my work with clients. My compassion, warmth, energy and respect are essential strengths that help my clients benefit from their counselling. Choosing to work primarily in a Person-Centred way offers a gentle and holistic way of working (and being) that can offer great strength, independence and understanding to both counsellor and client. I understand that to make that first call or email for counselling can be extremely difficult, but I am sure that if you make that step it could potentially be the first step towards making positive changes in your life.
Our initial meet will be for you to decide if you feel comfortable working with me and for you to discuss your issues and what you would like to gain from counselling. I am happy to have an informal chat over the phone with you if you're feeling unsure.
Training, qualifications & experience
MBACP Person-Centred Counselling
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.

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).
