Counsellor & Supervisor MBACP Registered; MNCS Accredited

About me

I am a warm, genuine, experienced counsellor & supervisor offering a safe, relaxed, confidential & non-judgemental space to work through your issues at your pace. I aim to ensure you feel safe and comfortable to talk about your issues, feel listened, supported, and accepted. I am passionate about helping others & it's always a great privilege to work with clients to help them gain clarity, feel calmer & more accepting of themselves and come to a calmer, more peaceful place.


I am a humanistic counsellor & work according to your need bringing in various techniques as needed, with your agreement, including mindfulness, journalling, CBT & EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).


My interest is in personal trauma and the impact this has on mental health & well-being. Personal trauma, small or big, past, present, one off incidents or long-term/ongoing, can have immense detrimental impact on confidence, self-esteem, ability to think, cope & relax and lead to living with worry, anxiety, stress, low mood & depression. Trauma is held in our bodies & can manifest in inexplicable pain and also affect responses to seemingly normal people/situations and having a negative impact on family, friendships & colleagues leading to feeling lonely.


I have worked with adults & young people in person, via telephone, online and have also run & facilitated group work. I also offer counselling to counselling students and those wanting to work on self-exploration for personal development.


I am Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy); an Accredited Member of NCS (National Counselling Society) & an Accredited EFT Practitioner; fully insured; undertake regular supervision & peer support and regularly undertake opportunities for learning & ongoing professional development (some of which is listed below). As part of my commitment to the profession I am a volunteer committee member of Counselling Northwest a local organisation run by counsellors providing accessible CPD for counsellors.


I offer appointments evenings, weekends and also Wednesday and Friday daytime.

You may be unsure about counselling & if it can help. You may feel you have no reason to be feeling the way you feel or it may be that others have suggested counselling might be something that could help you. Give me a call to discuss this and/or book a reduced fee introductory/initial session.

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.

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.
