About me

Hello my name is Kayleigh, thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I offer a listening ear, in a non-judgemental and confidential space. I respect that everyone has their own unique story.

If you feel that you are ready to talk through what is troubling you, together we can begin to explore the problem. If you have been experiencing stress or anxiety in relation to an ongoing problem, or these feelings may have begun recently due to the current pandemic, whatever the reason, the opportunity to talk it through may allow you to take back the control in your life.

Starting therapy can be scary for some people, however you have already taken the first step.

Availability

I am available for daytime, evening and weekend appointments. Depending on your preference, we can work together over the phone or via Zoom or Skype.

Send me a message and I will contact you to arrange your 30 minute free assessment at your convenience. This will give you the chance to ask me any questions. I can explain a little more about counselling, especially if you are unfamiliar with the process. This will also give us an opportunity to establish the way we will work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Level 2 Learning Support Practitioner Award specifically in Autism Awareness and Mental Health
  • Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

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.
