***During this difficult time of CV-19 I am only counselling clients online and not face to face. Please contact me via the counselling directory in the first instance if you would like to arrange an online appointment***
Do you get dragged down with negative thought patterns or regularly make unhealthy choices? Are you broken & need help being put back together? Do you struggle with unresolved anger, grief, past & present relationship issues or unmanageable anxiety?
I will help you identify your current feelings and understand where they are deeply rooted. I can help you make sense of negative thought patterns, unhealthy choices and unhelpful patterns of behaviour.
You might not understand why you react in a curtain way in a particular situation, or what triggers your anger, I can help you to discover a new sense of freedom, security and self-worth.
I use an integrative approach to counselling, mainly focusing on a Person Centred modality and using some creative tools. I work holistically with clients to discover what is stopping them moving forward, physically, emotionally, whether it is in relationships or personally.
Training, qualifications & experience
Dip HE Level 5 Counselling.
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.

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).

I ask all clients to sign a contract for a minimum of 6 sessions, I don't believe you can do very much work with only 2 or 3 appointments. If you need to cancel an appointment I ask for 24hrs notice or you will be liable for the session fee in full.
