About me

About Me

As a counsellor I have a experience of working with young people and adults across a diverse range of life issues. Having been through a journey of counselling myself I have an understanding of being in the clients chair.  My work therefore centres around providing a safe, confidential and respectful space for you to feel able to explore the challenges that you are facing.

About

I work using a "whole-person" approach that focuses on each aspect of being human: mind, body and soul.  The work is always designed around your needs and what works best for you. The aim is to empower and support you in your pursuit to resolve the issues you are exploring so that you can move on with your life in a positive and balanced way.

About how I Work

I use an integrative supportive and non-judgemental approach, responding to what you bring in the moment, as well as holding in mind the narrative of your life. I offer a flexible service to suit your needs, whether this is short term focused work on a particular issue or longer term work.  Sessions are for 1 hour on a weekly basis.  It is important that you feel empowered throughout the counselling process and to have trust and confidence in your counsellor. Therefore I offer an initial session as an opportunity for us to meet and discuss your needs more fully, and to see if counselling is the right way forward for you. If you are feeling anxious about the next step and would like to find out more please feel free to phone or email me.

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.

Wheelchair user access

My therapy room is situated on the ground floor and has wheelchair user access.
