About me

Hello, firstly, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read my profile here.

I recognise that you might feel slightly overwhelmed at present, not just by your own thoughts and feelings, but also by the amount of choice there is in finding a Counsellor.

I enjoy my work as a Counsellor and I take our work together seriously. It is my hope that  you will also come to enjoy our working together. Like a comfortable pair of shoes, it is essential that you feel we are a 'good fit'. We will be sharing a journey together, and we might explore some difficult terrain together.

I offer my clients a safe space in which to take this journey. I am interested in your experience, and look to develop an honest environment, that facilitates the awareness and change that you may be seeking. You should hopefully feel confidentially heard and safely held throughout our time together.

Some problems that I have helped others with are: Anxiety, Workplace Stress, Abuse, Anger Management, Bereavement, Depression, Panic Attacks, Low Self-Esteem, Relationship Issues, Sexual Identity. This list is by no means all of them.

Get in touch, and I look forward to us working together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained my Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in 2015, and following successful completion of the Certificate of Proficiency exam, became a Registered Member of the BACP in 2016.

I work as an Integrative Counsellor using three models of theory, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). These models enable me to fully understand you as a person, from the way you think, to the way you experience the world around you, and relate to others.

Prior to my qualifying as a Counsellor the majority of my working life has been spent in Retail and Customer Service roles. I feel this enables me to offer client the warmth and security necessary for a good therapeutic experience. I have personal experience of many challenges that might occur in life, such as debt issues, and bereavement.

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.
