MBACP (NHS) Integrative Counsellor / Clinical Supervisor

About me

A BACP-registered Integrative counsellor based in the Dudley  and surrounding areas offering confidential, face to face sessions to support and nurture you through challenging times.

You may have clicked on this site because you are going through a difficult time or you might have certain things in your life that are troubling you? In life, we face many difficult challenges and painful situations, which we can often find hard to talk about with family or friends. Through counselling, you will be given a safe and confidential space to explore and make sense of those feelings.

I can help you explore and make sense of difficulties in your life that have become overwhelming and difficult to cope with on a day to day basis.

  • Do you struggle with negative and critical thinking?
  • Do you suffer from low self-esteem and have no confidence?
  • Do you experience anxiety and overwhelm?
  • Are you a people pleaser who struggles to say no and neglects yourself in the process?
  • Have you grown up with a critical or judgmental parent and would like to make sense of those experiences?
  • Do you not feel 'good enough'?
  • Maybe you can’t put your finger on it, however things just don’t feel right or life isn’t as you want it to be?
  • Would you like to find your voice again and feel heard?
  • Would you like to quieten your inner critic?
  • Would you like to like yourself and feel 'good enough'?
  • Would you like to understand more about how past experiences have shaped current feelings and behaviours?
  • Would you like to be able to set boundaries and start to prioritise your own needs?
  • Would you like to learn more about the importance of self-care and apply it to your day to day life?

I know reaching out for counselling can feel difficult & daunting - but if you choose to, it's a really safe and valuable space which might not exist in your everyday life. Counselling sessions can be held over a short period of time particularly if there is a clear focus to the work. On other occasions where there is particularly complex or deeply rooted issues to be addressed the work may be more open ended.

Above all, it's important for you to feel comfortable with your counsellor. That is why I offer an initial 20-minute call free of charge for you to find out more and ask any questions you may have. There is absolutely no obligation whatsoever as I understand it is a very personal decision.

Member organisations

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.
