About me

Life can feel very overwhelming at times, and perhaps you are feeling stuck and don’t know how to move forward. You may feel embarrassed or a burden about sharing these issues with friends and family. My name is Eileen and I offer counselling that is both professional yet down to earth. I want to help you explore life’s difficulties finding a way forward that is right for you.  

When we have feelings of being overwhelmed, frightened, and anxious it can help to talk to someone who is unbiased and non-judgmental. Someone who will listen with empathy and sensitivity to you helping you bring an awareness to your situation that can help you make the personal changes you need.  

Counselling is a collaboration, I will not sit there and tell you what to do, we will work together to find out what it is that is causing you stress, anxiety, or depression and together we will find positive ways to help you manage these distressing feelings and help you get to a better place in your life. 

My experience comes from many years supporting people through my voluntary work with the Samaritans and from my counselling people in many other different settings. I have worked for over 35 years in people-based roles. The last 9 years I have managed a holistic centre where I have coached and supported people from all walks of life helping them to regain wellness.  

It is very important to find a therapist you can trust; one you connect with and who you feel understands you.  I offer a free 20-minute telephone conversation to allow to discuss what you are struggling with and to see if I am a good match for you.  

I am a qualified cognitive behavioral and person-centred counsellor and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. Starting therapy can feel very frightening. I can be there for you, so you don’t have to feel alone. 

Some examples of issues that I have experience working with are:

  • Loss and bereavement
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship issues
  • Work related stress

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
