About me

During pandemic, isolation and uncertainty have been very challenging for some of us. Due to Covid, I am offering online sessions as well as face to face appointments.

Sometimes life throws experiences and feelings our way that we did not expect. We may feel overwhelmed, anxious, lost, stuck and unclear about what we want from our life. Or feelings of guilt, anger & grief can become unbearable. Counselling can allow us to view ourselves in a more positive and constructive way, make different choices for ourselves and recognise the origin of our thoughts and feelings.

Deciding to see a Counsellor is often a difficult first step, especially for those that have never experienced counselling before. Fears of what it might be like can make you feel hesitant. In order to help your understanding, I offer £25 initial consultation sessions as a first meeting. This is an opportunity for both of us to find out how we fit and think about working together in the best way that suits you.

I am a fully qualified counsellor working both privately and volunteering within the NHS.I adhere to the BACP code of ethics. I offer an integrative approach while my core counselling theory is Person Centred. I integrate theories to help the clients with their process while providing a confidential, non-judgemental and comfortable environment.

I provide short-term and long-term counselling to help you process difficult feelings, feel heard and supported so that you can re-discover your identity, creativity and start moving forward with your life.

I have experience working with vulnerable adults, helping with hopelessness, relationship issues, anxiety, fear & depression. I also have experience working with cancer patients and their relatives.

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.

Key details

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.
