About me

Hello & welcome to my page!

I believe in working with individuals in a holistic manner, and I aim to work along side you in finding solutions that work for you, in a tangible and understanding manner. No problem is too small, because if it is causing you a problem, then it is a problem! It could be that your are feeling unfulfilled, undervalued, out of balance, or have lost direction. Perhaps you are struggling with a big decision, or feel you are at a crossroads in life.

Offering a safe, trusting and calm space to explore your feelings, without judgement,  we will work together at a pace that suits you. It does not matter if your issue is a current one, or an unresolved one from your past, using a flexible &  integrated approach, I will help you on your journey towards finding the best outcome possible for you.

Drawing from my experiences in a range of therapeutic settings, I am comfortable with any issues that you may wish to discuss, with empathy and open-mindedness. I also offer group sessions in stress or anger management, and counselling in the workplace. If getting to the office is problematic for you, I offer sessions by Skype.

I specialise in areas surrounding disability, long-term illness, pain conditions, caring,  parenting, and attachment disorders.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Post Grad Dip in Counselling, and have had several years experience both in private practice, and within a range of organisations.

I also have a Certificate in Education so I am very experienced, and comfortable, in working with young people.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.

Unfortunately the WC in the office is not wheelchair accessible.
