About me

Do you feel like you are carrying a heavy, emotional load that you wish to be relieved from? Through person-centred counselling/psychotherapy, I work with adults (16+) and aim to offer an empathic, safe, non-judgemental, confidential space for clients to come as they are to explore the issue(s) which are causing them distress. I believe that by creating an environment where a client feels well psychologically held, they can access and use their own internal resources for personal growth, healing and to find a way forward. I work with clients at their own pace, empowering them to have their own realisations and make decisions by encouraging them to look within and listen to their own wants and needs.

How can counselling help?

Counselling and psychotherapy can often leave clients feeling more in control of their lives, more content within themselves and optimistic about their future. Although an external situation may not change, the way clients internally respond and cope with the situation, can. I specialise in helping clients process and alleviate the hindering emotions, thoughts and beliefs which may feel all-consuming to them. Are you ready to lay down that emotional load and invest in improving your own mental wellbeing? If so, please reach out and contact me.

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.

20 minute free of charge initial phone consultation

It is important for you to find a counsellor who you feel comfortable working with. Therefore, I offer a 20 minute informal telephone consultation free of charge to find out a little bit more about why you are thinking about attending counselling and what you hope to get out of the therapeutic process. In turn, this allows me the opportunity to access if I feel my skill set is matched to your presenting difficulties.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
