About me

Thinking about counselling maybe suggests you are taking the first steps to see how it could help and benefit you; maybe accepting some aspect of your life that may not currently be working for you, or just feeling a little anxious about life in general and do not know why.

As a counsellor, I offer face-to-face sessions on a 1:1 basis. I work with individuals age 18+ on a short-term, long-term or open-ended basis. My clients include all genders, backgrounds, sexual orientations, races and ethnicities. If you would like to know more, please do contact me either by telephone or via email. This is an opportunity for you to outline your needs, expectations and discuss any current issues you may be having.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and a BSc (Hons) Degree in Reflective Therapeutic Practice where I studied at the Metanoia Institute and validated by Middlesex University. I am also a Licensed Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), NLP Life Training with Dr Richard Bandler. I am also a CBT Cognitive Behaviour Therapist Practitioner

I am a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am bound by BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I work with both adults and young people, and have an up to date DBS advanced certificate and hold Professional Liability Insurance.

I value social, cultural, sexual, religious and political differences and appreciate the importance of these in relationships.

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.
