About me

I have a broad range of experience working with adults and young people, all with different reasons for wanting to access counselling. I am able to offer sessions in counselling rooms in Northamptonshire as well as Ecotherapy and home visits.

How Might Counselling Help

Counselling itself isn't a cure, it is an arena where healing and change can take place.

Counselling Assessment & Process

The first time we meet is an opportunity for us to discuss why you wish to access counselling and how counselling might help. The relationship between the client and counsellor is paramount in effective therapy, and so we must both feel that I am the right counsellor for you. After the initial meeting, if we both agree to proceed, we will agree a mutually convenient date and time to meet each week for a 50 minute session. Initially it can be beneficial to meet weekly, but other options, such as fortnightly and monthly might also be considered.

Throughout the counselling process, we will review your original aims of counselling and you can assess whether counselling is meeting your needs and whether you wish to continue. You are free to end counselling at any time, but I would always recommend having a planned ending.

Home Visits

Home visits may be beneficial for a range of reasons and currently I am able to visit clients within a 20 mile radius of Thrapston, Northamptonshire, but I hope to be able to increase this in the future. The benefit of a home visit is increased if there is a suitable room in which to meet, with minimal distractions. If in any doubt then please contact me to discuss.

Single Session Interventions

A single 'one off' session can give you the time and space to talk about specific problems and consider your future plans. After an initial single session, you might decide that you would like on-going sessions. Any additional sessions can be discussed and agreed and might include, either time limited (6-12 sessions) or longer term.

The duration of single 'one off' sessions is negotiable but may typically last for 90 or 120 minutes.

Ecotherapy

Not all counselling sessions have to take place in a counselling room or your home. Ecotherapy is a formal type of therapeutic intervention, which involves being in nature. Please contact me if you would like further information

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.

Please contact me for further information.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Please let me know if you require wheelchair access and I will arrange an accessible room to meet

Supervision

I have experience of providing clinical supervision to both students and qualified counselors and I currently provide Supervision for student counsellors on placement with the charity Mind and qualified counsellors in private practice.  My supervisors qualification is a Postgraduate Certificate (level 7) which qualifies me to provide supervision across a range of disciplines in addition to counselling and psychotherapy.  I believe that counselling supervision is one of a collaborative relationship where supervisor and supervisee “work together to ensure and develop the efficacy of the counsellor/client relationship”.
