About me

Making the decision to reach out and ask for help is the first step to discovery and understanding more about yourself. Counselling is a talking process to enable you to speak about the difficulties in your life and find ways to manage and reduce them.

Counselling can be very daunting especially if this is your first time. We will have an initial assessment to talk about the problems and issues affecting you and see if this works for you. it is an opportunity for you to ask me any questions you may have about counselling. There is no pressure to commit to counselling at this stage.

I make use of various theories and models to work in a way that fits you. This method of working is referred to as Integrative.

For those of you still distancing and quarantined I offer on line Skype video sessions.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.
