About me

I am offering face to face appointments with all required safety measures in place alongside online and telephone sessions.

Whatever your reason is for seeking Counselling, it will provide you with the opportunity to tell your story to someone that will not judge you, will not offer unsolicited advice, someone that really listens to understand you and your perspective.

Counselling helps us to process and learn how to better manage the tough stuff, the painful stuff, the shameful stuff. The stuff that holds us back, makes us sad, makes us angry, makes us doubt ourselves but it also helps us take back control, feel more stable and confident to go after the life we want.

Notice how I say ‘us’ and ‘we’ when I describe Counselling. This is to show that none of us are immune to difficulties and struggles in life, myself included. Your feelings are valid and important regardless of what others are going through. I truly believe that everyone can benefit from Counselling, so whatever you are facing, please believe there is always hope even if it may not feel like it right now.

I work from my home based Counselling cabin that is a confidential, cosy and relaxing environment for you to explore the challenges you are facing in your life.

As an integrative Counsellor, I use a variety of approaches to suit your particular concerns of which we will work through together at your pace.

I understand how daunting seeking Counselling can be so please contact me if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment.

Thank you!

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.

Further information

I previously worked as a Hobby Therapist supporting residents and their families living with Dementia in nursing homes. I worked to encourage mental stimulation through art, crafts, music, conversation activities and social interaction programmes with fellow residents building friendships and a sense of community.

Creative therapy can be extremely insightful when we are unable to express how we feel using words. Creativity is welcomed in our Counselling sessions if that is something you would like to explore however this is not essential for everyone.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified

I can offer home visits as an alternative.
