About me

Hello and a warm welcome, 

Thank you for visiting my profile. My name is Holly and I am a BACP- registered, Person-Centred counsellor and I have a special interest in working with eating disorders, diagnosed or not. I work with individuals with eating disorders and  loved ones supporting someone with an eating disorder. I also work with a range of challenges such as stress, anxiety, difficulties in relationships, trauma, sexual abuse and low self esteem. 

I hold a degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Clinical Counselling. I also have experience, training and qualifications in other therapeutic techniques, such as Schema Therapy for eating disorders, Transactional Analysis and Empty Chair Therapy.  This enables me to be flexible and tailor my support to suit your needs. 

I truly believe that you are the expert in your own life, no one knows what is best for you more than you do. However, sometimes, particularly in times of challenge, we can feel lost when we are on our own. With the right person and guidance alongside you, you can find your way through your difficulties. Therefore, I like to work with you collaboratively, on the areas of your life that you deem most important to process, in order to heal and achieve the change you want.  I aim to provide a non-judgemental environment in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings in a way that feels safe and manageable for you. 

I offer counselling via online or telephone sessions by arrangement. The number of sessions required varies depending upon the individual and the issues presented.  This will be discussed in our first session, and we will review our work periodically to help ensure the best outcome for you.

Getting Started

Having read a bit about me, if you feel I may be the right counsellor for you, please do get in touch via email to set up a free initial telephone call. The purpose of this call is for me to get to know a little bit more about what is troubling you and your expectations from therapy.  I can then outline what I can offer you, we can discuss what therapy is likely to involve and I can answer any questions you may have.  After reflection, if you decide you wish to continue, we can arrange an initial session. These are usually weekly or fortnightly and at the moment are likely to be between the hours of 9am and 12pm on Monday or Thursday mornings.

How to Contact Me

Please send me an email providing your name, email and phone number and a time when I can reach you by phone.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have eight years’ experience of working in a healthcare setting.  I have worked previously with a broad range of presenting issues including working with survivors of sexual abuse.

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor, and have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology,  with a Diploma  in eating disorders.  I also have a Masters (MA) in Clinical Counselling.  I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics and boundaries. 

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
