About me

Counselling aims to help you explore your circumstances, understand your feelings, thoughts and behaviour and so be better equipped to make decisions. It is a completely confidential process.

I am a counsellor with 20 years experience working with a variety of counselling models in an eclectic way. During these years I have worked in the statutory setting and voluntary agency area. Since qualifying as a counsellor in 1997 I have many years experience of working with a variety of issues. My work with clients is confidential and I work according to the code and ethics of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP). As a member of BACP I am bound by its ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy, subject  to the professional procedure there in.

Counselling sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually weekly.

The number of counselling sessions are not fixed and can be negotiated to suit your circumstances.

The Counselling Fee is £40 per session.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor with a diploma in counselling and psychotherapy.

I have worked in partnership with several local government agencies including the National Health Service.

My specialist areas are addiction and domestic violence, helping people to acquire a greater sense of self worth and confidence, therefore enabling people to make clearer life decisions.

Working with people to develop better communication skills is a way forward in finding confidence and self esteem.

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.
