At some points throughout life we may not register why we may feel a certain way, we may feel stressed, anxious or frustrated but not really know why. We struggle, we procrastinate, but we are left wondering what is the root cause of these issues? Counselling can be a fantastic way to open ourselves up to the possibility of moving forwards and making changes, at a pace we feel comfortable with.
I am an experienced and qualified counsellor working within the person-centred approach but able to comfortably integrate CBT practice and mindfulness where appropriate.
I have a range of experience and have worked in specialist areas such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, addiction, sexual abuse, bullying, anger and LGBTQ issues. I am most experienced in working with domestic abuse in all its forms, emotional, psychological, physical, financial, sexual, gaslighting and coercion and control. I am experienced in working with the impact of trauma.
I have worked with a wide range of people from all walks of life and I work uniquely with everyone, believing the most important gift we can give another is to truly listen and to truly want to understand.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Person Centred therapy and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have a BACP Certificate of Proficiency and I regularly attend training to continue my professional development.
I have worked within a number of specialist counselling organisations where I am very proud to have gained a great deal of experience.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer an introductory session at £25 for individuals and £30 for couples- we can meet in person and discuss any questions you may have with no obligation to continue.
Each session thereafter is £40 for individuals and £50 for couples per session.
I am happy to answer any questions over the phone or via email as I understand accessing counselling can feel challenging.
