About me

Sometimes you want to be heard, truly heard. To have someone to talk to about whatever is on your mind, to be listened to without being judged or told what to do. If you are feeling anxious, upset or overwhelmed, I am here to listen and help you to explore your feelings, to better understand them and feel more in control. I offer a supportive and confidential space where we can explore whatever is troubling you. By exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours - both past and present - I can help you to better understand yourself and to accept and let go of what has been weighing you down, to allow you to move forward.

I will listen, ask questions and try to understand what life means for you. Following over 13 years’ working in different areas of the NHS, I have spent the last 3 years based on an Gynaecology unit focussing specifically on women’s health. My approach is integrative, each individual I work with is unique and no single approach suits all people or issues.

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.
