Are you telling people you are 'fine' even though you know you aren't? Maybe you're going through a bereavement, a life transition or difficult time in your life. Perhaps you're struggling to process past experiences or are living with a chronic health condition that feels difficult to manage. I provide a warm, non-judgemental environment where we can explore your difficulties at your own pace. I won't try to fix you or give you advice - I work in a way that empowers you as the expert on yourself.
I'm passionate about accepting people as they are and believe there is no feeling too small and no thought too 'silly'. I believe in providing an environment where you feel comfortable to say the things you've been holding in. I am here to listen to your story, without judgement and can help you explore your feelings in a way that helps to meet your needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Accredited member of the BACP and have a degree in Counselling with Brief Interventions. This means that while Person-Centred Counselling is the foundation from which I work, I am also trained to work in a more goal-focused way and can blend the two approaches together to meet your needs.
I have experience working with older adults, vulnerable women, issues surrounding poverty, bereavement and chronic health conditions throughout 3 years working in charity settings and 2 years in the NHS. I have also worked with people on the stresses of modern day living such as career issues, family life and the impacts these can have on our sense of self and wellbeing.
I work with young people from 18 years and above, adults and older adults.
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.
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.
