About me

Welcome to LifeLine Counselling.

LifeLine Counselling provides face to face long and short term Person Centred Counselling to individuals, couples, qualified counsellors, counselling students and EAP referrals.

Taking the first step towards counselling can be a difficult decision.....if you are struggling...come and talk.

I will welcome you with warmth, without judgement in a safe setting, where I will work and listen with respectful compassion. I am a warm and caring Counsellor with a genuineness towards others.

It can take courage and strength to come and explore what may have become a very difficult situation for you.  By finding the space to share, self confidence and self worth has chance to develop,  Beginning to understand your thoughts and feelings, choices will become apparent, encouraging you to move forward and make changes with increased strength and direction.

My practice is grounded in the Person Centred approach offering you the opportunity to share your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that have brought you to seek counselling.

Your counselling journey is unique to you and there is no right or wrong way to begin your counselling. From the very first moment and throughout your personal journey, I will be with you to listen and work hard at encouraging a deeper and clearer understanding of your circumstances and choices.

Many people have found counselling a helpful and nourishing way of exploring issues and difficulties in their lives. Through this process, new perspectives are discovered and ways of managing daily life, creating improved self awareness and confidence which encourages a deeper level of personal satisfaction and inner peace.

Are you feeling as though you need some support,  perhaps unsure where/who to turn to...?

Now might be the time to make contact and coming to talk could help.

Perhaps you may be finding it hard to cope with life in general, particularly if you have feelings of low mood or depression, perhaps finding it difficult to manage a specific concern in your life or life in general.  You may find it easier and more helpful to talk with someone face to face outside of your immediate social or family circle.

"Discover your own personal journey to find the courage to change and move forward  - taking time to talk is worthwhile"

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership

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.

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.
