Living Life can be difficult and painful at times and choosing a counsellor can be a daunting process, so now you are here who do you choose?
Chances are, if you’re here, you want something to be different in your life, and may already have tried very hard to make these changes, but have become stuck and frustrated.
My core belief is: We are not sick trying to get well, but instead, hurt, trying to heal.
It is my desire to help you find the power within yourself to navigate through these times with more awareness and insight. To help you express and explore your feelings and beliefs and to assist you through your own unique journey.
I believe we all have the power to make change but sometimes need a little help along the way.
So do you have concerns you would like to explore with someone not involved in your day to day life, in a safe, calm environment that is non-judgmental, caring and respectful?
Let's make change happen together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor who uses my knowledge and experience to work in a way which best meets your needs, offering short, medium, and long term sessions
I am a Registered member of the British Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) who ensure that I uphold the highest professional and ethical standards.
I have experience in counselling adults and young people on a wide range of concerns and I am committed to offering a caring and supportive service.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
people's problems are more often cross cutting than specific, therefore I put the person at the centre of the work and follow what they bring into the counselling session.
When appropriate I draw upon creativity to facilitate the counselling process eg art, writing, music, eco- therapy.
I am available for morning or evening appointments Mon - Sat
I offer day time (including early mornings) and evening appointments. The location is on a regular bus route between Tamworth, Lichfield and Sutton Coldfield, close to the A5 By-pass and within easy reach of the M42. Parking is available.
