About me

Hi, Thank you for viewing my profile. Life can be very challenging at times and issues we face can leave us feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious and dealing with stress and burnout.  I offer a safe, empathetic and confidential space where we can reflect on areas that are impacting your life and help you find answers within yourself moving toward healing and wellbeing.

I am an integrative counsellor with my work being mainly person centred incorporating object relations where past events are recognised but more in the context of how they affect the here and now rather than being the main focus of the work.  I am a member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework. I am able to offer telephone or online counselling depending on the preference of the client.  I have completed 80 hours of training in online and telephone counselling with Counselling Tutor. Due to COVID19 restrictions, I am unable to offer face to face counselling however when restrictions have lifted I am able to work in a private room within a counselling agency.

I offer short and long term counselling depending on your needs as well as a free initial 15 minute consultation.

I have worked in placements within a male prison, a charity which works to house the homeless and a church.

I have a keen interest with assisting those who have experienced trauma and have undertaken training in the effects trauma has on the body.

I am an adult sibling of a person with a life long disability as well as having 9 years experience of working with deaf and blind people so have a wealth of experience and understanding toward the challenges people with disabilities and their families can face.

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.
