About me

I value individual differences, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection and relationship. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. I know that i am not a fixer and i don't have all the answers, although I might have a suggestion or two. I know that I am ok to sit with people in chaos. I can tolerate stuckness and I am not afraid to be afraid, nor walk into a dark place.

My aim as a therapist is to create a space where you can explore your difficulties, develop an understanding of where and how these difficulties arise to enable you to find ways to make improvements. This can involve thinking about how you view yourself, your relationship with others and how to make positive changes to move forward. I practice on a one to one basis offering you a safe non-judgmental and supportive environment. I provide the opportunity for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behavior to identify core issues which may be causing you stress.

I am trained in Integrative Psychotherapy and work with clear ethical boundaries. I am registered with both British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and UK Council and Psychotherapy (UKCP). I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life, realize your true self and live it more fully.

If you decide to have counselling, the first step would be to arrange and appointment by telephone or email. This initial meeting is very important so you can discuss your particular concerns and what you would like from therapy.

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.
