About me

You may be feeling confused, frustrated, scared or sad and through all of these emotions you are feeling alone and isolated, as though nobody can understand.

You are seeking safety, support, empathy and understanding and that is why you are searching for the right counsellor for you.

I offer person-centred counselling in a safe and confidential environment. That means that you are the centre of the relationship, not the issue or concerns that you want to work on.

I will not judge you and there will be no expectations that you will work with me after our first session, I understand that you will need to feel that we are ‘matched’

Why don’t we start off with a free no obligation telephone consultation, to see if you have made the right call? Just 10 minutes will hopefully help you to at least start to feel better; the beginning of your journey towards feeling happiness.

I have worked with clients through issues including stress, anxiety, depression, rejection, abandonment, eating disorders, addiction, trauma and unhealthy attachment patterns.

I am professionally qualified and insured, and I work ethically, within the BACP Framework.

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.

Testimonial:-

When I was facing some uncertainty, I decided to go for counselling to help me sort through my thoughts. I was a bit worried as the last counsellor I'd seen was very formal and I didn't feel comfortable speaking to them. Thankfully, I was paired with Holly and I ended up seeing her regularly for a year. She was so easy to talk to, I felt like I could tell her anything and without fear of judgement. Holly's counselling was invaluable. She helped me work through a lot of things, both past and present, when I didn't feel like I had anyone else I could talk to. I feel very grateful to have had her as my counsellor.

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.
