MA, MBACP Dragonfly Counselling Nantwich

About me

People seek counselling for all sorts of different reasons. Maybe you are feeling anxious or depressed or are suffering from low self-worth. Perhaps you have been affected by painful life experiences, or maybe you are uncertain about why you feel the way you do. Whatever your reason, deciding to start therapy can be an important first step towards addressing your troubles.

Only you experience your life the way you experience it and therefore I will not judge or evaluate you or offer advice. Instead, I hope to facilitate your exploration of what it is that is troubling you in an understanding, empathic environment so that you may feel more comfortable with yourself and your life and may find a way forward that is good for you.

Finding a counsellor and beginning therapy can be daunting and it is important you find a counsellor you are happy with. This is why I offer a free introductory conversation. Whoever you are, whatever your issues, you will be treated with respect and without judgement. For more information of to arrange a session, please get in touch by phone, text or email.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained through Chester University, where I completed a Masters in Clinical Counselling, qualifying with distinction and gaining experience through counselling both survivors of abuse and students.

I have worked with people with a variety of different troubles, including difficult childhood experience; sexual, physical and emotional abuse; the experience of coercive control; difficult family or relationship experience; and low self-esteem, depression and anxiety.

As well as offering private counselling sessions, I am a volunteer counsellor at a charity which offers counselling to survivors of abuse and also at my local hospice.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
