About me

Are you struggling with an issue at the moment? Maybe you have struggled all your life . No matter how small or big you feel your issue is - it can be sorted - sometimes in just a few sessions.

I offer a combination of counselling and coaching with flexible appointments when you want them.

Maybe you are struggling at work and would like some coping strategies to help you manage a stressful situation.

It may be that your personal life is causing you stress.  If you have experienced loss of any kind - or you just struggle with low self esteem/gender/confidence issues - it helps to talk about it and see what help is out there.

Do not suffer alone - whatever the issue is - you will be amazed at how easy it can be to sort.

TYPES OF THERAPY I USE

PCT - PERSON CENTRED THERAPY

Deals with your individual beliefs, values, past  experiences /relationships and how these affect you today

CBT - COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY

Deals with current issues and helps you understand why you behave in a certain way and helps you change the way you deal to improve your life.

NLP - NEURO LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING

This deals with the outcome you want in any given situation.

We look at how you need to be - and find a way to be that person.

NLP helps with confidence issues.

SFT - SOLUTION FOCUSED THERAPY

Focuses on building solutions rather than solving problems.

Existing problems and past causes are acknowledged but the emphasis is on your current resources and hopes for the future.

SINGLE SESSION THERAPY

Looks at one issue and explores options helping you to make the right decision.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).
