About me

Life can be challenging at times and it can be difficult to make sense of what’s happening to us. Sometimes events from the past can trip us up unexpectedly, too. We can struggle to understand our thoughts, feelings and behaviours but counselling can help by enabling us to consider things from a different perspective, moving us on from repetitive cycles of thinking.

As we are all unique, I adapt my approach to individual needs and to take into account what you want from counselling. My years as a teacher have been followed by many counselling hours within the NHS system, with Rape and Sexual Abuse (RASA) Merseyside and in private practice. I therefore have experience of working with clients who have brought a wide range of issues, including anger, anxiety, depression, fear, loss, low self-esteem, PTSD and abuse in its many forms.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, with qualifications in Person-Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I am trained to deliver Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is recommended by the health advisory body NICE and by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a treatment for trauma. I regularly participate in training opportunities such as hypnotherapy, inner child work and safeguarding. I am also qualified to practice the Rewind Technique.

I am a member of the BACP and adhere to BACP ethical guidelines. I am also a member of the EMDR Association UK and Ireland.

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.
