About me

I am a person Centred Counsellor. I believe that whatever the problem is, we all have the ability within us to find the answer. I will work with you to explore, gain insight into and look for a way for you to find the resolution to whatever it is that is bothering you. I will not judge. I will not give advice. I will provide a safe, comfortable and confidential environment to allow you the space, freedom and time to be open and honest with me and with yourself.

I also offer Reiki as an aid to reducing stress and providing relief during periods of emotional distress, grief and sorrow.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am a registered member of the BACP.

Prior to training as a counsellor, I worked for many years in a senior management role with a large number of staff reporting to me. I was responsible for their performance and a large part of our success as a team lay in motivation and emotional wellbeing. I learned an awful lot about people during these years and about what makes us balanced. I think this experience has stood me in good stead and given me a very good grounding in being able to offer help.

Over the past seven years I have been involved in establishing and running a voluntary counselling service, providing a service for those who cannot afford to pay fees and in addition, providing placements for students who are working towards their qualifications.

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.
