About me

Experienced and qualified counsellor working with adults, adolescents and young people, helping them through many different issues such as anxiety, depression, disorganised thinking and more: Mindful of the Covid crisis, I am available to work via online or telephone thereby continuing to offer therapy to help people through this stressful time.

There are times when we can become confused and overwhelmed with things in our life. This can make us feel unmotivated, anxious and depressed. We can even look to other areas to numb these feelings, such as disorders and addictions.

It can be difficult to find someone who will listen without making judgement on your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. As your therapist, I can offer you a safe and confidential place to explore your issues and concerns. I can also help you gain a better understanding of yourself and others by discussing your emotions and behaviours. This can help find the right solution for you to make change or cope with your worries.

I aim to create a therapeutic relationship where you can feel able to explore issues which have brought you to counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience in various settings, including Private Practice, NHS, Education and Schools and the voluntary sector; working with a wide variety of issues and age-ranges.  Member of the BACP and I hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

  • FdA Degree in Counselling
  • HE Diploma in Counselling Skills (Level 2-3)
  • Certificate in Counselling Skills

Additional short courses have been taken to enhance my counselling skills and knowledge.

Member organisations

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.

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.

There is a gravel area and a small step into the therapy room. Please contact me regarding support or access adjustments.
