Client-centred Integrative Counselling

About me

As a registered, qualified and experienced counsellor I provide a safe, warm and confidential environment in which we can work together and address your difficulties.

Are you feeling sad, anxious or depressed generally, following a bereavement perhaps? Or lacking in confidence and self esteem? Perhaps you are struggling in your relationships or feel you can't continue with the way you are feeling? Counselling offers you the chance to stop everything and focus on yourself and your needs. To reconsider how you have been dealing with your life and find more effective and happier ways of being yourself.

Whatever has triggered your decision to consider counselling at this time, my aim is to provide a warm and safe space and the time you need to help you take a look at your thoughts and feelings whilst offering uncritical support. Counselling helps you notice if you keep repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour. It offers you the chance to question your beliefs and fears and find out what you need to feel better and move on with your life.

It is an opportunity to express your feelings, be listened and heard uncritically, and supported in making positive changes. At the same time it is helping you heal from hurtful experiences you may have had in the past.

My training is Integrative and I draw on the therapeutic approach which corresponds to each individual as counselling progresses. My approach is one of non-judgemental respect, offering you unconditional acceptance of your own ‘response-ability’ - you choose when and whether you wish to change.

So in your own time we may explore your past experiences to help you gain insight, perspective and begin the process of letting go of undermining habits,

 or unhelpful patterns of thinking as you achieve effective, mindful 'ways of being' and living more happily in the present. We can look at gentle strategies that you might decide to employ as part of a more constructive approach in your relationships, etc. Or you might want to use some sessions to plan for your future.

The Counsellor- Client relationship itself plays a key part in this healing, empowering process, building or boosting your hope, courage and self-esteem. In turn this can lead to improved relationships and understanding of yourself and others, a fuller participation in life, a new sense of direction and, ultimately, a greater expression of your true self.

Member organisations


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 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.

If stairs are a problem for you a comfortable ground floor space is available.
