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 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.
