About me

I know it can get hard when all you can think about is “what if..” or “what happens when I”. What about when your out and about when suddenly for what can be seen as no reason, you have “one of those moments” also known as a panic attack. You’re not alone, and you can overcome these times.

Anxiety, depression, feeling sad, generalized anxiety, low self-confidence or esteem, and social anxiety are just a couple of things I can help you with.

Going to counselling can seem quite a scary thing to do, but it is a way to help you master your fears. I have been working as a counsellor for the last few years helping people like you overcome their fears, anxieties and other mental health issues. I have been working for the local university for the past three years, counselling them with the issues they bring. At this time, this has mainly been done online or via the phone. In my private practice I have moved from just online and now include walk and talk for those locally. By talking and understanding what is going on, we can work together to help you get to where you need to be.

Let’s work together and move you on from this fear, in what previous clients have said “a warm and personalised therapy”

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.

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.

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.
