About me

I am an accredited practitioner in Individual and Relationship Counselling and have over 20 years experience working within the supportive role. I have a variety of experience working in the public and private sector with young people, adults and families. Also as a highly experienced guidance officer, mentor and family support worker.

As a counselling therapist, I offer a person-centred approach (also known as ‘client-centred’ counselling) but also use a holistic approach to therapy, this aids with focuses on an individual’s self-worth and values. I believe that being valued as a person, without the fear of being judged can help an individual to accept who they are, and reconnect with themselves with the people and things that are precious to them.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Degree and level 5 Diploma in counselling which was accredited by Middlesex University and College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London

I am a registered member of the BACP (the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and currently offer Individual and Relationship Counselling.

As a counsellor I believe that discussing issues with someone who can offer impartial, non-judgement but compassionate support can be very useful. Discussion of these issues will help clients develop coping mechanisms that will ultimately free them from whatever challenges holding them back. I am committed to helping people explore their emotional challenges which can affect their mental well-being and/or simply help them with self-development as they search for a sense of meaning.

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.
