About me

Welcome to my profile, I realise it can be daunting to reach out for help when you may be feeling overwhelmed or lost what ever the situation. You may be feeling anxious, stressed,angry, depressed or have low mood my aim is to help you.

I am a qualified Person centred counsellor, and CBT therapist a registered member of the BACP 373243 and am bound by their ethical framework, I work from my own office seperate from my property within a rural setting so own transport is vital.

What to expect

You may not have had counselling previously and so might be unsure of what to expect. I offer you the space and time to explore the issues you choose to bring to counselling working together at your pace through sessions of 50 minutes.

I respect all individuals and therefore realise the issues you want to bring to counselling may feel different from anothers problems. The counselling you receive has to be unique to you enabling a solid foundation of trust to build between counsellor and client.

I offer a flexible approach to help explore feelings and emotions with a variety of techniques. Working in a person centred way I offer a safe warm environment allowing you to express your feelings & talk through any problems worries and anxieties you may have In a confidential empathic setting without judgement.

Although I am a person centred counsellor I also have qualifications in other areas such as CBT & working with children & young people. I also have a enhanced dbs certificate.

I have previously worked in a GP practice for two years seeing a wide range of clients working with Anxiety, Stress, Depression Generalised anxiety, Panic, addiction along with other issues and currently work within a charity setting offering counselling across all spectrums.

Please feel free to call or email me for a chat regarding any worries or concerns regarding what is going on for you at the minute, with no obligation to begin counselling with me. I can also offer telephone counselling by prior arrangement.

Member organisations

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.

Key details

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.
