I am a gentle and compassionate counsellor offering a non-judgemental and reflective space when exploring challenges and choices that can present themselves in daily life. I work with clients experiencing a range of issues that include anxiety, depression, addiction, loss, family relationships, physical ill-health and trauma. I hire a comfortable and inviting office space in Hull which is warm and friendly. I provide remote counselling via telephone or video for flexibility. I am an Integrative Counsellor using a range of approaches to help guide and support you on your journey of self-discovery.
Whilst I have experience of working with clients with a range of issues I believe it is the strength of the relationship between client and counsellor that can provide a path to recovery. I am responsive to clients needs, utilising theoretical approaches and creative methods including visualisations, feelings cards, guided meditations and letter writing.
Through the safety and support of our counselling sessions, I can help you to make sense of what you are experiencing right now and explore ways of moving forward with acceptance and courage. I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified counsellor having obtained my Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling from York St John University. This qualification is accredited by the BACP. I have also completed a qualification in providing online and telephone counselling with Counselling Tutor.
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
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
