About me

*Coronavirus safe therapy online*

We all struggle at times in our lives and there is no shame in reaching out for help. It can be an extremely hard step to take and from my own experience also a truly wonderful one.

Fundamental to my approach as a Person Centred counsellor is to offer a relationship of equality.  Instead of advising you or telling you what to do I offer a non-judgemental and trustworthy space to help you explore difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I place emphasis on building a therapeutic relationship, believing it facilitates change to occur. Therefore I offer myself as a companion accompanying you on your journey, at your own pace, to help you gain clarity and perspective.

People come to therapy for a range of reasons; you may be struggling with a lack of meaning in your life causing you to feel negative, a traumatic loss like bereavement or relationship break up. Perhaps you are experiencing anxiety or depression or difficulty in letting go of painful childhood experiences.  Whatever the reason I aspire to treat everyone as an individual and their experience as unique to themselves.

I offer one-to-one weekly therapy sessions on an open-ended basis or an agreed period of time.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in Person Centred Therapy gained at Metanoia Institute. I am a member of the BACP and therefore abide by their code of ethics. I am experienced in working with people from a range of backgrounds with an awareness of race, gender, sexuality and cultural differences. I have been working as a therapist for the past 8 years and in that time I have encountered clients with differing problems from PTSD, anger issues, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, childhood trauma, chronic illness,  sexual abuse, low self esteem, self harm, relationship break ups, cultural struggles and questions of sexuality and religion.

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.

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.
