About me

How counselling can help


We all go through difficult times in our life.  Sometimes the feelings we have become too much.  That’s where counselling can help. Counselling can help you to find the answers to your problems.

Maybe you are struggling with issues such as low self-esteem, low self-confidence, low self worth, assertiveness, imposter syndrome, anxiety, depression, perfectionism or a not feeling good enough. Maybe how you are feeling is impacting on the relationships in your life.

Maybe you are just finding life generally difficult at the moment and need an independent, safe and confidential space where you can really talk about what is troubling you. 
I work with you to help you respect and accept your thoughts and feelings.  I help you to understand them so that you can see things more clearly. This safe space can help you find the answers to your problems.


People that are close to us such as family and friends may not always be the best people to talk to when we are unhappy. We may not want to worry or upset them, maybe feeling embarrassed or they may offer well intended advice that doesn't actually help.
Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk through your difficulties without being judged, interrupted or pressured to take action you don't think is right for you or that you do not feel ready for.


I have a special interest and passion in working with eating issues, relationships with food, eating disorders, body image issues and obesity. I also work with clients on issues relating to self-esteem and self - confidence, as well as issues like anxiety, stress and depression.


I understand that coming to counselling and sharing your problems and feelings can be daunting and difficult, after all we may not get the opportunity to do this in every day life. I work with you to build trust so that this feels easier.

Although counselling can be a difficult journey it is also a very rewarding and empowering one where you can discover yourself and make any changes you wish, and I will walk beside you on this journey of self discovery.

I have comfortable and confidential counselling rooms in North Warwickshire where I can offer face to face sessions.  Some people find counselling over the phone more convenient and beneficial. Whether this be because you have difficulty travelling or prefer the anonymity that talking over the phone offers, I can accommodate this.


I am trained in Person Centred Counselling this means I have a range of skills to help you with your problems.


I understand that you may have questions for me so please feel free to get in touch.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have a special interest in working with eating disorders and obesity and I have trained at the National Centre for Eating Disorders.

I work with all issues relating to eating including relationships with food, struggles with losing or gaining weight, eating disorders and obesity and body image issues. I also work with how this impacts your self esteem and self confidence.

I have worked with employees in a range of sectors and organisations such as teachers, medical staff, charities to name a few and have experience of offering counselling related to work place issues such as work related stress.
