MBACP (Accred) Counsellor and Psychotherapist/Supervisor

About me

Hello and welcome, I am an accredited Person-centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Solihull. I work therapeutically with adults, children and young people with a wide range of difficulties and issues which impact upon their everyday lives emotionally, psychologically and physically. I am experienced in working with clients from different cultures and backgrounds.

I offer a warm, empathic and non-judgmental space where individuals can safely explore and work through their problems. Some of the issues I can offer support with are:

  • Anger Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Body image
  • Confidence
  • Depression
  • Panic disorder
  • Relationships
  • Self-esteem
  • Self-harm
  • Social anxiety disorder.
  • Trauma

Working with children and young people: There is a growing awareness of the difficulties children and young people can have when communicating psychological and emotional discomfort and how this can leave them feeling isolated, alone and misunderstood. Counselling can help individuals reconnect with themselves and others. In addition to talking therapy I also offer a variety of therapeutic activities and creative work to help facilitate improved self-understanding and awareness of their individual problems and help develop their own resources and coping strategies.

Couples Therapy: I provide a safe, warm and facilitative space for couples to explore and work through their problems. A space to help couples develop clearer communication and understanding; listen and respect each other; re-establish peace and calm in the relationship and rediscovered each other.

I am also experienced in working with individuals who have Asperger’s Syndrome, ASD, ADHD, ADD, specific developmental delay and global developmental delay.

I offer both short-term and long term counselling.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have up-to-date safeguarding and a current Enhanced DBS. I am also fully insured.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
