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)

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.

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.
