Hi, I'm Faye and I'm a fully Qualified registered Counsellor.
Helping people through difficult times is my passion, and there is nothing more beautiful than seeing someone becoming empowered and having the confidence to embrace themselves authentically and fully, and being able to move forward to a happier and more rewarding life and mind-set.
I am warm, friendly, open-minded, accepting and non-judgemental. I provide a confidential and safe-space for you to explore your emotions and what is going on for you, and I will be with you through every step of our Counselling journey together.
I primarily work as a Person-centred Counsellor, which means that I believe you are the expert of you, but I have also trained in other methods of Counselling and can bring these to our Therapy sessions if we feel it is what is best for you as an individual.
I aim to help you explore and process difficult feelings and emotions (both past and present), have increased awareness and understanding of yourself, to understand what your needs are and to help provide you with the tools to move forward in life, to become confident, empowered and able to trust in yourself and to provide a safe space for change to take place at your own pace.

I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I'm a registered member of the BACP. I have monthly Supervision, am fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

During this time I worked with a diverse range of Clients and have experience of working with anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship difficulties, gender and sexuality, anger, abuse, addictions and trauma.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
It's important that we are the right fit for each other, as building a warm and trusting Therapeutic Relationship is an integral part of therapy.
I offer a free initial 15 minute phone consultation - this gives us time to have a chat about what your Therapy needs are and to establish if you feel I am the right fit for you.
The best way to contact me is via email or text and from there we can arrange a suitable time for a phone consultation.
My Fees are £40 a session (which is an hour).
I look forward to hearing from you!

Pet Bereavement Counselling.
I have also spent the last 3 years working as a Veterinary Receptionist in a very busy Practice. Throughout this time I have realised that there is a real need for, and also lack of, Pet Bereavement Counsellors. There is often some degree of shame about grieving for a pet, and particularly a lack of empathy and understanding from others over how devastating the loss of a pet can be. Having been there myself, and also witnessed on a regular basis how hard it can be to lose your beloved companion (from receiving a devastating diagnosis, making that difficult decision and the loss that follows) I am here to listen. I understand. Your feelings are valid, you are not alone and I can help.
