About me

Welcome

Thank you for taking the first steps to explore what you need in order to find peace of mind. You have already begun the healing process to set yourself free.

Counselling

I work with adults, children and young people, in order to help you achieve your goals and reach your potential.

Working with you to tap into your creativity, to facilitate the healing process in order for you to be the person you really want to be. This part of you has probably been hidden for many years, but because of what you have heard and what YOU have told yourself you are left with doubt and unbelief in the person you really are. You want to do some thing but don’t know what! Or your fears and anxieties are holding you back.  Working together we can unlock the doors, which have kept you trapped.  Working together we can provide you with the support you need, to bring you closer to your goals, your dreams and aspirations.

My aim is to:

Help you unlock the blocks that are keeping you awake at night, due to fear, disappointments, rejection, lack of support, loss of job or redundancy to name a few. Together we can identify what is preventing you from reaching your potential and creativity. In many cases we have the intention to do something but we lack the will to really engage ourselves into action.

Together, because the work is led by you:

  • Enable you to be the best they can be
  • Enable you to have those difficult conversations
  • To raise your self esteem and develop confidence
  • Tap into your inner strength and creativity
  • Enable you, to make informed choices to transform your life.

Supervision

Working with qualified counsellors and counsellors in training, 1-2-1 and in groups offering an integrative approach.  Supporting you to reflect on theory and practice and make sense of your client work.  Work with you, to look at different models that could also support the needs of the client and creating an environment which is supportive and challenging.

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.
