About me

With over 11 years experience of working with clients gaining experience within the voluntary sector in the NHS and a drug and alcohol recovery centre working with a wide range of clients. I am now working from home, in a lovely spacious therapy room. I also offer home visits to those clients who prefer this as an option. I started Peace of Mind Counselling Services in September 2015. As an integrative therapist I am able to tailor counselling to your specific requirements. I am qualified in Counsellor and Clinical Hypnotherapist with training in CBT, Mindfulness and mental health. I am registered with the BACP and I have public liability and personal indemnity insurance.
I run a Facebook page for Peace of Mind Counselling Services and Peace of Mind Hypnotherapy services, where I host regular FREE online chat events. In May 2021, I completed my diploma in Counselling Supervision.

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have completed a Mindfulness course which I feel can be beneficial to clients whether it be small or big changes. Mindfulness is focusing on the here and now, with cognitive behavioral therapy and person centred therapy it enables the therapy I offer to be suitable for all. Hypnotherapy sessions are available and it can be used for so many things including, weight reduction, anxiety, fears and phobias, birthing, stress, confidence, IBS and so much more.

Personally, I believe counselling should be affordable for all, with working from home it allows me to keep my fees realistic and suitable to all.

Initial assessment - (contract, assessment and short questionnaire, this is beneficial to both client and counsellor, it allows the client to release as well as allowing me to see where the following sessions structure fits, this can and will change with you. Allowing me to see what you are wanting from counselling, possible goals and outcomes)

Further information

I have a wide range of counselling experience, I have worked within the NHS for several years, High Level drug and alcohol treatment centre and private practise. During my time at both of these organisations I had the privilege of working with a wide range of clients, gaining experience and knowledge along the way. Since starting my own business in September 2015 I have not only been working with clients from home but also completed a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy which I have found very interesting and its easy to see how this can be very beneficial to clients for many reasons and in many circumstances. Hypnotherapy sessions are available and it can be used for so many things including, weight reduction, anxiety, fears and phobias, birthing, stress, confidence, IBS and so much more. In May 2021, I completed my Supervision course too, I have already had the privilege of working with many counsellors.
