I am passionate about the benefits of counselling as I see the life changing effects it has on those I work with. If you choose me as your counsellor you will receive a professional, confidential and safe service. You will always be treated with respect, care and dignity.
I bring 10 years of experience and expertise to my counselling service and you will find me an approachable, warm, supportive person who will use my skills and expertise always with your best interests at heart.
I work from a comfortable and private counselling room in a quiet part of Bournemouth.
Training, qualifications & experience
Since 2010 I have experience working with a diverse range of people and issues. I have gained a great deal of experience working with people suffering from common mental health problems such as Depression and Anxiety disorders.
My current speciality is working with those suffering from Emotional / Binge Eating issues. I have expertise working with obsession based behaviours such as compulsive Gambling, Gaming and Porn addiction.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP); adhering to their ethical framework for safe practice.
Teaching is a passion of mine and I enjoy passing on my knowledge and expertise through delivering counselling courses at a local college. I also design and deliver training courses, facilitating workshops and working therapeutically with groups.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£50.00 per session
Free initial in-person, telephone or online session
I offer a free initial half hour appointment if you would like to meet me first before you commit to counselling.
It is an opportunity for us to discuss what you would like to gain from counselling, how I will work with you to achieve this and if you feel I am someone you can work with.
I offer a concessionary rate for those who cannot afford the full fee. Please contact me to discuss.
