About me

Are you struggling with day-to-day activities or in your relationships? Have you found yourself falling into patterns of behaviour that can be unhelpful? If so, counselling could help you. I offer a space where you are free to explore your issues where you don’t have to pretend to be anything or worry about being judged. Whether you are struggling with feelings of anxiety and depression or have suffered a loss of some kind or one of the many other things that bring people to counselling, I will support you in working through the issues.

I understand that coming to counselling can be daunting. I can offer a safe place where you can work through difficult feelings and start to make sense of things in a non-judgmental environment. I will support you through our work together.

I have diverse experience of working with young people. This ranges from supporting young people with conditions such as Autism, ADHD and Oppositional Defiance Disorder in an academic setting; providing emotional support in a mentor role within a school; and counselling, providing therapeutic support. I understand the demands that young people can face in today's society from many different areas.

I work with people from the age of 13 up to and including adults. I offer short term and long term counselling.

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.
