About me

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 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.

Accessibility

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.
