Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
If you feel ready to seek counselling, we will initially meet for a FREE 30 minute assessment to ensure you feel comfortable with me as your counsellor but also for me to get a little insight into you and your background.
Once this is completed and we both feel comfortable to proceed then we will meet consistently on a weekly basis for 50 minutes.
I am a qualified counsellor with an Integrative Counselling Diploma which means I studied the following different theories: Person Centred Counselling, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt.
If you wish to know more, please do get in touch.
So there's the professional part...... the next part is me. I may not look it but have been through a fair bit of life tests myself. Losses (friends/family/loved pets), divorce, parents separation, single parent, low mood, financial worries, health concerns, volatile relationship, low self esteem, anxiety, intimacy worries, baby loss and there is probably more.
In a nutshell I've been through a fair bit myself and can honestly say following my journey I have become a much better person myself, and now enjoying life to the best of my ability!

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.
