About me

Are you struggling right now? Do you need to talk but prefer not to burden those closest to you? Maybe you are looking for support for your child?

Capella Counselling is a safe place where you can talk in confidence, working through whatever it is that is troubling you. Now that restrictions have lifted, I can offer a choice of in-person, online (video/audio), or telephone appointments.  

I can support you or your loved one with issues such as:

  • anxiety and depression
  • panic attacks
  • stress
  • low self esteem
  • difficulties at home, at work, or at school
  • self-harm
  • relationship difficulties
  • loss, bereavement
  • feelings of loneliness.

You may be here because you are concerned about yourself or a loved one. It may be your son or daughter you are seeking help for. I understand how worrying it can be if your child is troubled and unhappy. I am able to work with you to support your child manage school, friendships, build self-esteem and emotional resilience.

If you would like to discuss if counselling is right for you or someone you care about, please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Member organisations

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.

Wheelchair user access
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.

Please let me know if you have any additional access requirements so I can ensure the room is suitable for you.
