About me

Talking to a Counsellor or Therapist for the first time can feel daunting and you may feel hesitant about sharing personal information with a complete stranger. I fully understand these feelings and I can offer you a safe, quiet and undisturbed space for you to come and talk about any concerns or worries you may have in a confidential, respectful, non-judgemental and empathic environment, while maintaining safe, professional boundaries.

I work from my home and I offer F2F Counselling and Telephone Counselling; all counselling sessions are for one hour; in your first session you can talk about your reasons for choosing counselling and if counselling is right for you and if we can work together.

Counselling may help with personal relationships, family issues, child related issues, separation and divorce, feeling sad, low mood and depression, anxiety and panic, OCD, social anxiety, GAD, trauma, loss and bereavement, low self esteem, feelings of loneliness and isolation, low self confidence and the many issues which can sometimes affect us as we go through life.

Talking with a Counsellor may help to give you more awareness and understanding and provide help and support and encourage you to develop confidence in your own ability to help yourself, and may provide extra support outside your network of family and friends.

Counselling is a confidential talking therapy and may be able to help you become more aware and understanding of your thoughts, behaviours, feelings, moods and emotions about a particular situation or event in your life, from the past, present or future.

As a Registered Member MBACP; British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I work to the BACP Ethical Framework.

I will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I can offer Person-Centred Counselling to help you try to understand, accept and come to terms with your thoughts, feelings and emotions about something that may be troubling you from your past, present or future.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), which can try to help you to recognise and become more aware of your thoughts, behaviours, feelings, moods and emotions about a situation or particular event in your life and to help you to change these thoughts, feelings and behaviours. CBT can help you to change how you think and feel and react to a particular situation, event or experience.

And Mindfulness which can help you to manage stress and worry by adopting a Mindful approach. "Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgementally" Jon Kabat-Zinn. Adopting a Mindful approach can help you to manage depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), anxiety and panic attacks, by cultivating compassion, kindness and gratitude within yourself.

After many years of seeing clients, I believe Counselling can provide a unique, beneficial and sometimes necessary additional support for a client at a time of great change, upheaval and uncertainty in their life. Many clients have said to me, that coming to see a counsellor wasn't quite what they had expected and that it had helped them in many different and unexpected ways.

I am currently studying for a Neuroplasticity Diploma and I hold a Grief and Bereavement Counselling Diploma, an NLP Practitioner Diploma (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), a Life Coaching Diploma, a Diploma in NLP Foundation Skills (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), a Diploma in Mindfulness, a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling, an HND in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and I work from my home.

I have regular monthly Supervision of my client work and hold Professional Indemnity Insurance; an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service certificate (formerly CRB) and I continue to build upon my professional knowledge and experience (CPD) Continuing Professional Development Qualifications including; Grief & Bereavement Counselling; Mindfulness; Relaxation Breathing;

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.
