About me

Hello, my name is Eve, I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I have worked in a broad range of settings and have taught counselling degree students at the local university.

I understand that contacting a counsellor can feel daunting and you may feel unsure of what to say and what to expect; I will work with you at your pace, there is no right or wrong as it is about you.

Please contact via email or visit the website (link on profile).

What is counselling?

Counselling is a unique process and the definition may vary from each individual perspective. I like to see counselling as a personal journey whereby a person is able to feel safe, supported and heard with the empathy and guidance of a qualified therapist who is able to walk beside them, enabling reflection, healing, overcoming and working towards goals. I respect that each person needs to find the right therapist for them with whom they can build a trusting therapeutic relationship.

Every person is unique and therefore I aim to adapt and fit each client and their needs.

What does a counsellor do?

I always work with the individual at the centre of the session; I do not advise, rather I facilitate the client in finding their own answers in a calm and safe space. My role is to walk alongside you.

I have experience in working with a variety of issues; I am a person-centred counsellor who practices an integrative approach, this means that talking therapy is offered and depending on each individual- other models of therapy may be incorporated such as CBT. I only ever work at the client's pace and offer tools which they may or may not feel is right for them. 

While I am sharing this information in order to give insight into myself and my role, I do not wish to overwhelm you; the most important aspect of any therapy is the counselling relationship and your needs.

I adhere to the BACP ethical framework. Ethical and moral practice is at the centre of my profession and the core of my being. .

Is therapy right for me?

You may wish to explore a specific issue or it may be a variety of issues, events and feelings; both past and present. You may not know exactly what you want to share yet.  There is no expectation, I am here to support you and help you in working towards your goals.

Neurodivergent Therapy;   I am a late realised autistic woman, I am passionate about autistic advocacy and I aim to try my best to make therapy a helpful process for all neurotypes. I understand that for many neurodivergent individuals a 'typical' style of therapy may not always be suitable, I am here to collaborate with you to find what works for you. 

My therapy room is a calm space with adjustable lighting. I have tools to help stimming and fully support each client to relax in whatever way suits them within session. 

Chronic Illness and Diability: With lived experience of hypermobility Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Epilepsy, Chronic Pain, IBS Reynauds Syndrome and Chronic fatigue I understand that therapy can feel overwhelming and perhaps even unhelpful without real insight and understanding from the therapist with whom you are working; I aim to meet you exactly where you are and hope to support you in management of these conditions whilst respecting the grief and exhaustion that may exist also. 

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and organisations-  block sessions available.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).

Other areas of counselling I deal with

It is sometimes difficult to name what it is that is bothering us, sometimes it can be a feeling or certain behaviours or lack of enthusiasm or control. Although I work with all the issues listed above, it is not necessary that you come able to name the issue you would like support with. I am here to help facilitate your understanding of self and to empathise and walk alongside you on your journey of healing and discovery.
