Hello and more importantly welcome to my listing. If you've decided you would like to speak to a counsellor, you may be feeling apprehensive and even a little overwhelmed, you might be stuck and struggling to know where to turn. Then you're faced with the big decision as to who to go and see. Someone who is truly going to understand you and who "gets" what you're going through, someone who's capable of sitting with your pain. Hopefully I can be that person for you.
How often in your life can you say you've had time just for you with no distractions? A space, to be heard, listened to, not judged and cared for? A space to unravel your thoughts and make sense of your world and move forward? I would like to support you in the process of beginning therapy and by being there for you.
Perhaps work is feeling stressful, or you are experiencing problems in your family or romantic relationships. You may have realised that you have been isolating yourself or behaving self destructively and be ready to talk to someone. To find ways to improve your self esteem and make some changes in your life.

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.
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.

I am a Registered Qualified Counsellor based in Rippingale, Bourne, Lincolnshire offering one to one private therapy in a discrete and relaxing counselling space. I am an integrative counsellor and use a non directive approach to understand your world through your eyes. I have worked extensively with trauma, relationship breakdowns, anxiety, depression, bereavement and self esteem issues. I’m not there to judge you. I listen and support you during your counselling journey, and hope to build a trusting relationship with you.
Most recently I volunteered as a counsellor for Little Miracles in Peterborough for over a year, and prior to qualifying I worked within the criminal justice system with both youth and adult offenders for around 10 years. My experience includes working with teenagers and adults.
