About me

Offering flexible online and telephone counselling throughout the UK. 

Therapeutic Counselling

I have helped clients with a wide range of personal difficulties including bereavement, abuse, relationship issues, anxiety, addictions and low self-esteem. You do not have to be in crisis to come and seek support, therapy can be an essential part of your self-care and support system. I have helped clients to develop a deeper understanding of their relationship difficulties, relationship communication, and relationship experiences. 

Both short-term and long term counselling is offered and I am committed to personalising therapy for you and doing so collaboratively. Therapy can also be provided more flexibly, around your schedule.

I am trained in more than one theory and counselling method. This enables me to incorporate different techniques and methods to personalise the therapy to the individual client. The space that is offered is secure, confidential and unjudgmental, whether this is online or in person.  You will be encouraged to open up and explore your various difficulties while I understand that for some it can be hard to open up to a stranger or talk about experiences that have caused you pain. 

Short-Term Counselling

Short-Term Counselling is offered and available in both face to face and online settings. As it is short-term therapy it will be more focused and goal-orientated and will include therapy models that may be associated with brief therapy such as CBT.  I offer:-

A 6 - 10 week course of focused therapy

 These sessions will each last 50 minutes each and are for those who want to focus on a particular issue or goal, and generally prefer to work in a more active, directive and goal-orientated way. You will be provided with an unjudgemental and supportive space where you will be able to bring your goals and what you will like to focus on, and we can explore that collaboratively. I will be using techniques associated with brief therapies such as CBT methods.

Short-term therapy is not right for everyone. You may have experienced trauma, grief, relationship difficulties, depression or emotional distress where long term therapy will give you more time to effectively explore your world and experiences.  You may also prefer to receive long term therapy, and not necessarily want to focus on one goal. This can all be explored in the free initial discussion, to ensure you are getting the right service beneficial to you. 

Please contact me by text, email or phone for any more information or to book an initial discussion.

Training, qualifications & experience

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.
