About me

Hi I’m Fay,

Sometimes life's ‘stuff’ gets us down and it can be unrelenting. Problems can feel like burdens that we can't carry or sand that we can't grasp. This can feel even worse when no matter the number of people we know, we just can't talk about it because maybe we don't know how to...or we think people just won't 'get it'.

There is hope, and there is a brighter future for you...it doesn't have to be this way.

Maybe to be understood is all we need.
To feel heard and seen.
To talk about problems.
To work out a new perspective or solution.
Counselling can give you the space you need to do this.
To be free to say what you think and feel without reprisals or repercussions.

To give you a chance to learn about yourself. Why you do what you do, and to create opportunities for new choices instead of living in reactions.

If you want to talk I'm here to do that whichever way is comfortable for you.

I offer a variety of counselling techniques that may be suited to you and a safe space to work with you.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications…

  • Level 4 Diploma in Counselling
  • Level 3 Certificate in Counselling
  • Level 2 Certificate in Counselling

My experience

I’ve worked with people who’ve had abusive childhoods and abusive adult relationships, PTSD - flashbacks, triggers and trauma.

I’ve worked with people who’ve lost loved ones, pets, homes or jobs that are everything to them and I’ve worked with them through the anxiety, shame, guilt and feelings of worthless that can often be hard to talk about.

Do you hurt yourself or have you tried to end the pain through death?
I’m here to listen and talk about it.

Addictions, debt and struggling to survive on little money as well as long term illness, disability and pain. I’m available if you need to talk about managing stressful a job, getting a job or simply getting out of bed in the morning and I’ve worked with people who find it hard to care for themselves by for example, eating properly.


I have learning and experience in talking about all these situations and am waiting to talk with you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
