About me

I am a qualified counsellor able to work with adults and young people supporting them through challenging times, helping to initiate change and restore balance in their lives.

We all find life hard at times, psychological difficulties can take us by surprise, often feelings emerge that something is not quite right. We can feel disconnected, unhappy, tearful, anxious. Whatever your reasons for seeking help it takes courage to do this. People are often fearful of exposing their deepest selves, but with the help of the right therapist it can improve relationships and reduce emotional fear and suffering.

What I Offer

My priority is to provide a supportive and authentic relationship that will offer space and trust for honest exploration without judgement. Together we will try to resolve your problems. This might mean gaining more understanding of how your past has shaped your present, changing repeated patterns of thinking can offer the opportunity to heal and move forward. My job is to listen and stay alongside you in the work. Through exploring and reflection together, we make sense of what might be causing unhappiness, moving toward a greater sense of understanding yourself and ultimately peace.

Values and Style

My therapeutic style is primarily integrative, working from a person centred approach with integration of theories guiding the therapeutic direction. This means that the work is tailored to each client uniquely. Ultimately I see the work as creating a completely respectful and sacred space. I am passionate about creating wellness and a healthy mind and body connection.

I hold Carl Jung in particular regard and love his quote 'we cannot change anything unless we accept it'.

Initial Session

Seeking counselling can be a daunting process. It is important that you feel comfortable and find the right therapist for you. In our first meeting we can gain a sense of if it feels right for us to work together.

How many sessions

Everyone is different, some people will require a limited number of sessions, others longer term work which can be open ended. During our initial meeting we can decide together what will be best for you.

Appointments are once a week for 50 minutes.

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.
