About me

*Covid-19* As a qualified Online Counsellor and member of the Association of Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO), I’m experienced in offering counselling via Zoom (secure video platform), telephone, email and instant messaging. I can offer this service to clients needing to have social distance or to self-isolate due to Covid-19.

I work with individuals and couples, offering a warm, welcoming and safe space where we can explore what is causing you distress.

I will support you in difficult moments, offering a respectful, non-judgemental relationship where I hope you will feel heard, understood and accepted. As our counselling work progresses, I will support you to find more clarity and strength in yourself and a way forward that is right for you.

In relationship counselling, I support the communication between you both. I believe it is important that you are both listened to and valued equally as individuals within the therapeutic relationship.

Clients see me about a wide variety of issues including loss of a loved one, redundancy, questions of identity, and relationship breakdown, events which bring dramatic change to our lives often leaving us feeling lost, bereft, stressed, anxious or depressed.

I’m a Registered and Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling (Keele University). My experience includes working with staff and students at three Universities, bereavement and loss, and counselling for staff in the NHS.

I’m based in Shenstone, between Lichfield and Sutton Coldfield. I offer flexible appointments on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can call or text me on 07484 342078 or email me by clicking on the above link.  Please contact me to discuss the best support for you. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
