About me

COVID UPDATE

Face-to-face counselling sessions NOW available
Zoom and phone counselling sessions available

There are times when we may run into unexpected problems in life. We experience moments of sadness, anger, and loneliness that stop us so much that we are overwhelmed by our worries and even forget how we were before.

My approach to counselling is based on working with you, clarifying what is overwhelming, and exploring to make positive and meaningful changes in your life. It can be an opportunity to improve your understanding, gaining positive insight, and to heal yourself holistically to move forward to your authentic journey.

Counselling is about you to process whatever you would like to bring, and we could work together to understand your potential, yourself, and uncover tools to move forward to your life. Any concerns about partnerships, work, family relationships, anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement etc., you can discuss confidentially. I think it can be uneasy to find a right counsellor for you, therefore, I offer you the initial consultation (consultation lasts about 15 minutes free of charge). There you will have the opportunity to ask questions and suggest problem areas.

I promise that everything you talk to me will be heard unconditionally and with deep compassionate warmth. I am based on an empathic and sensitive harmony about what you are experiencing and you will come across both honesty and an open mind. I provide a space where you can work together and build connections, using preferred approaches and techniques to suit your needs and goals.

Aa a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I am bound by the BACP Ethics Framework for Good Practices in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Therefore, I have regular supervision and CPD. She also holds the current Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced Certificate and is insured for professional liability insurance.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
