About me

I am offering a low cost counselling service. Through my voluntary work I see the real need for assessable counselling and I am now able to provide that through Zoom or telephone.

I first discovered counselling when I was referred to one many years ago. The experience for me was life changing. It was one of my first relationships that valued my choices and it and me gave me the tools, knowledge and courage to make changes in my life. I believe no one will know the truth about themselves until you find it by yourself. In doing so will give you greater value and empower you to make your own choices.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained my level 2 and 3 many years ago and then I had a break to bring up my family. I returned to college where I achieved level 4 in therapeutic counselling. During this time and to the present date I have been volunteering at the Sunflower project, counselling women who have had addictions, abuse and traumas in their lives with the aim of supporting them during their journey. I have completed many continuous personal development courses in bereavement and loss, shame, using tarot cards in sessions and the TA 101 to enhance my knowledge which keeps me up to date and will be of benefit to you too.

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.

Further information

I will ensure you will have a safe, warm, non-judgemental space in which together we can navigate and explore any feelings or difficulties that you are looking to change in your life.

Being an integrative counsellor means I will respond to your needs by pulling on different approaches to counselling that will be individual to you. I will not give advice or a list of changes that I feel you need to do to help yourself to feel better, what I will do is help you discover your own way of understanding yourself and to provide you with the tools, which will help you, make these changes.

I am able to offer video call or telephone counselling.

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.
