About me

Hello!

I am a Professional Integrative Counsellor, and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). There is a strong person centred element to the way I work, although I also combine different modalities according to the need of the individual. I believe every person has the resources within them to grow and become more fulfilled. My focus is building our therapeutic relationship and developing an atmosphere of trust, as it is in this environment that self-acceptance and psychological healing can take place. Therapy is a collaborative process, where we will work together in an environment free from negativity and judgement, where you can safely explore your issues and emotions.

Life is challenging! The way we perceive our emotions can have a huge impact on our mental health.  Expressing our emotions and verbalising our experience allows us to process the events that happen to us. Maintaining good mental health is just as important as staying physically healthy and is vital to the ability to engage with ourselves in a positive way and connect to our experience in a way that allows us to grow and develop healthily.

I am committed to providing a dedicated, professional and friendly service. 

As well as traditional therapy, I also offer 'walk and talk' sessions.

My appointment times are flexible and I am available for weekend appointments.

Training, qualifications & experience

My counselling experience has been gained through working in Local Primary Mental Health Support Services (NHS), offering 1:1 counselling sessions to individuals with a diverse range of mental health issues such as anger management, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, bereavement and suicidal thoughts.

I have worked extensively with conflict resolution, assertiveness training and managing challenging behaviour. Previous to becoming a counsellor I supported individuals with Learning Difficulties and Autism.

I have a Foundation Degree in Integrative Counselling and I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and psychotherapy (BACP). I work to the BACP Ethical Framework and I am committed to my self-development as a therapist, undertaking regular training and supervision.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
