People access counselling for a variety of reasons. You may have a specific issue you would like to discuss, be dealing with a significant life event, finding it hard to cope with something or need to share something in confidence.
As a person centred experiential counsellor I will work collaboratively with you to enable you to explore your experiences and the core issues affecting you.
I offer a confidential, quiet and non-judgemental space for you to speak about and explore whatever you need to at your own pace.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic social isolation restrictions I am offering online sessions via Zoom.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA in Person Centred Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy gained from the University of Nottingham. Prior to my post graduate degree I developed wide experience of working with people facing significant life changing events established in a professional career of over 30 years working in support and advice services.
I work with a broad range of issues and have a particular interest and experience in the areas of personal growth; dealing with anxiety, low self-esteem, self-harm; depression; substance use as a coping mechanism; sexual identity and relationships; and working with people experiencing issues around their identity and relationships with others.
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.
