About me

I offer a non-judgmental, accepting, confidential environment where you the client can share your thoughts and feelings. I work with adults, adolescents, children, parents and children together. My space is warm, and welcoming. Using a holistic approach we can work together on whatever you need. I have a wealth of experience.

Are you feeling anxious, depressed, sad, alone, having panic attacks. Are you worried about a loved one. Do you feel as if you aren't sure where to turn to for help. I'm here to listen and support you on your journey.

Using verbal and non-verbal techniques I can tailor the counselling specifically to the individual and to their unique needs through the therapeutic process.

Counselling is not about instruction or advice giving, I do not know you best and I will not tell you what to do. We will form a 'bespoke' relationship, which allows us to work together with respect to support you through the process of change you are looking for.

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 can work virtually and face to face. I have adapted my space to support covid health regulations. I am offering some face to face for children, and virtual  for all others with the current pandemic.

For Children's therapy i have separate sand trays and toy boxes for each child.The Therapy Shed has it's own entrance and exit, hand sanitiser and a warm, caring counsellor to support my clients.

Virtual counselling is highly successful and enables you to be in your own space and comfort. This can seem off putting for some, please contact me to discuss if you are unsure.

I work with couples, individuals, is your relationship not what it once was, are you feeling anxious or depressed? Is the pandemic leaving you feeling isolated or unheard.  Do you feel you are using measures you aren't comfortable to relieve your stress or form some normality?

I've worked extensively with people managing or struggling to manage their drugs and or alcohol consumption.

I have extensive experience working with children and young people. I also offer relationship counselling, and family therapy.

Adolescent issues such as peer pressure, parental difficulties, risky behaviour, promiscuity, attachment issues and self image, anger, self harm, self-esteem and confidence issues. Parents struggling to understand their children and how to cope with those difficult adolescent years.

I have worked in schools for many years with children that are permanently excluded from mainstream school, or those at risk. I have been the safeguarding lead working closely with many agencies and social services.

Have you been bereaved, is the grief consuming you? maybe it feels as if you 'should' feel better.  Reach out I've worked with children and adults to support them through their loss.

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.
