About me

I offer a variety of therapies, including Cognitive Behavioural, NLP, Ericksonian, Humanistic Person Centred Therapy, and Gestalt.

I integrate the three concepts from the three major theoretical approaches; psychodynamic, humanistic, CBT.

People see me for a wide variety of reasons, but in one way or another they are usually trying to get back some control over themselves and their lives.

Clients come from a wide variety of backgrounds and with different ideas of what therapy entails, also vary in age from childhood to senior citizens.

Hence the therapy is tailor made to the client but is always relaxed and conducted with a touch of humour, in a healing, serene, comfortable environment.

I work within the ethical framework of the BACP for good practice, I ensure that the identity of my clients is always protected. My clients can speak freely knowing that everything they say during counselling sessions is confidential. and is covered by the confidentiality clause.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Fees

Because people come from a variety of financial backgrounds, I have no set fees.

The least I would expect to charge per session would be £30.

I do this because I believe that the NHS itself should be offering a wider range of therapies than is usually the case.

Accessibility

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.
