About me

I am a person centred counsellor with a diploma in existential counselling. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or general problems in living my aim is to help you to explore and bring about change in a new, interesting and life-enhancing way. Existential therapy may be helpful to people who lack direction or who have worked towards goals which they no longer find fulfilling. If you have been through a crisis, be it a bereavement, divorce or other unforeseen change in circumstances, so that you find life lacks meaning and direction, existential counselling may help to point the way forward.

Life is complex. How do I fulfil myself and negotiate relationships and satisfy my conscience? How can I find peace and come to terms with the cards life has dealt to me? I find life limiting but need to progress. I have reached a point in my life where everything looks bleak. These are the kinds of issues I feel I can help a person deal with and clarify.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have years of experience working with Cruse (bereavement) and Mind (general mental health) and can provide an understanding and accepting environment to people who may feel lost and bewildered.

I am a Member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am fully insured and have monthly supervision as required by this organisation.

I have a Level 4 Diploma in Person Centred Therapy and a Diploma in Existential Therapy.

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.
