About me

Hello,  I am a Person Centred Counsellor and this means that I am like a passenger in the car that you are driving.  You will take me with you on this drive and I will work as your map reader as we navigate the roads and bumps together so we can reach a destination. 

I work with people who are suffering with depression, anxiety, trauma and sexual violence.  I  also use other approaches and work intergratively with you so that we can meet any goals that you may have.

We will work together to discuss what you may need from counselling and explore how counselling can support you in discovering what is distressing you.

I offer a safe and confidential environment this can be delivered face to face, online or via the telephone.  I have recently completed Eco therapy training and we can meet outdoors for a counselling session.

Sessions are an hour weekly at a time that is safe and convenient to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in Person Centred Therapy at Bangor University and have been qualified for 7 years.  

I have completed a Level 5 Children and Young Persons qualification to enable me to work with children and Young people from the the age of 8 upwards.

  • Eco Therapy
  • Online and Telephone Training
  • I am a member of the BACP

I attend various training courses to learn more about issues effecting clients so I can gain an insight.

I have worked within sexual violence for the past six years and over the last 2 years have worked with other forms of trauma, anxiety and depression, PTSD, bereavement and relationship difficulties.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access
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.

Supervision

In person
Online

My aim for Supervision is to provide a space that allows the supervisee to develop, challenge, explore and to gain an understanding about the work they are undertaking and also about themselves.
