About me

Hi, I am an accredited counsellor.  I am also a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I practice in the Wilmslow area of Cheshire. I work with young adults, couples with relationship issues and individuals.


ABOUT ME

In the counselling room and currently on zoom or WhatsApp I work with couples and individuals in an integrative way which simply means that I am able to use various styles of counselling. This will help to provide the best type of counselling that suits you and your requirements, needs and goals.  I offer both short and long term counselling.

We will work together in a caring, safe and non judgemental manner to discuss any issues where you are really listened to.

I will work with you to help you to explore and challenge the difficulties you are experiencing and we can help you look and find the solutions to bring about the positive changes and wellbeing that you are wanting for in your life.

I understand it can be difficult to make
initial contact. I will try to make this as easy as possible. Therefore, I am happy to initially briefly chat to you via email or telephone to discuss any questions that you have regarding the counselling process.

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.

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.
