If life is beginning to feel overwhelming counselling can help you. I understand that taking your first steps towards seeking help can be frightening, that's why I will do my best to make the experience as transparent and simple as possible. Counselling can be helpful to a range of matters, whether they are specific experiences or general feelings you'd like to discuss.
I am a person-centered counsellor meaning sessions would be led by what you want to discuss and that I can make observations and help you to recognise patterns or areas of concern. Sessions would be supportive, non-judgemental and confidential, providing a space for reflection, self-discovery and growth.
The number of sessions required can be flexible depending on your personal needs, this can be discussed during the first session and reviewed as we go along.
I have experience working with adults and young people, providing counselling in a range of settings and for a range of charities and businesses. In particular I have worked extensively with stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement and issues in the LGBT+ community.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma qualification in Person Centered Counselling awarded by the CPCAB (Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) meaning I am qualified to offer 1-2-1 counselling sessions.
I am also a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework. I am fully DBS checked.
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.
