About me

Sometimes life gets complicated and it can all feel a bit too much. At times, we may face a crisis in our lives which we are unable to overcome on our own. Maybe you just feel a bit stuck at the moment and do not have anyone you can talk to about how you feel. If so, it can really help to have someone to talk to. Counselling offers a confidential space where you can be open about the issues you are experiencing and the impact they are having on your life.

If you are not sure how you feel, that is fine too. It can take time to explore and understand what is going on and why it is affecting you so much.

Embarking on counselling may feel daunting but, once you take the first step, it can set you on the road to making positive changes in your life. Sharing your thoughts and feelings in a safe space can be empowering and enlightening.

I am trained to use a person-centred approach which means I will work with you at your own pace, getting to the issues that are troubling you in a non-intrusive way. I also hold in mind other theoretical approaches to help you explore and understand your problems. Our work will focus on developing the therapeutic relationship so that you feel emotionally supported throughout your counselling. I will encourage you to feel free to be honest with me and your honesty will not be met with any judgment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Foundation Degree in Counselling and a BACP Accredited Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling.

I am trained to use the Rewind Technique for PTSD/Phobias. See International Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP registration no: 379611) www.bacp.co.uk

I work with clients with a variety of issues. I have worked in an Emotional Wellbeing Centre working one to one with clients in addiction and survivors of domestic abuse. My work is helping people to make sense of their issues, grow more confident in their ability to face life’s challenges, trust their own judgments and take control of their lives.

I have also worked in an Emotional Wellbeing Centre working one to one with clients in addiction and survivors of domestic abuse.

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.
