About me

Welcome to Loughview Counselling and thank you for taking the time to read my profile . I am an integrative counsellor, working in the profession for 15 years. I work from a person centred/CBT approach and am a Registered Member of the BACP and am NCPS Accredited.

Sometimes Life can become overwhelming and you struggle to find answers, a way forward or an understanding. I offer a relaxed, confidential and safe environment, where you can explore your challenges and learn new coping skills, I can help you to work through specific problems, helping you to take the first steps and challenge the obstacles that stand in your way. If you are struggling to cope with a situation past or present then I can help you to look at moving forward in a positive way, gain new perspective and develop a more positive outlook.

I work with a wide variety of issues

  •   low self-esteem/ confidence
  •   grief and loss
  •   anxiety
  •   relationship issues
  •   depression
  •   sexual orientation issues
  •   etc

It isn't always easy to talk with family and friends so I offer a non judgemental space where you can feel safe, respected and able to talk openly. You will have the time and space to work through your issue/s, face your challenges and start your journey forward. My practice is central to Carrickfergus and also covers surrounding areas of Greenisland, Whiteabbey, Larne and Ballyclare, as well as UK wide via online.

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.

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.
