About me

As I sit and write this I wonder if these are the right words. We all have good days and bad days, good weeks and bad weeks. Sometimes those days need to be talked about so we can make sense of them. When we have a broken leg or a chest infection we treat it with a plaster cast or antibiotics, when we have worries, trauma, depression, any mental health issues it is more than OK to treat it with psychotherapy and counselling. It is the right things to take time to heal our minds as well as our bodies. Here at Wright Minds we'll help you to do just that

What I Offer

I offer an integrative counselling service with a person centred focus but use methods from CBT, critical incident stress management support, supervision, and mindfulness to adapt my counselling practise to the needs of each individual client. I use them in conjunction with the client’s aims of therapy to provide a tailored therapeutic environment for each individual.

Previous Experience

I have particular experience with life changing illness, bullying, loss of any kind, bereavement (including pets), relationships, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and life changing issues as well as trauma.

I have been working as a counsellor for over 10 years now and have over 3,900 hours of counselling experience with clients from age 4 upwards. I have worked as a staff counsellor in the NHS, as a volunteer counsellor for a sheltered housing organisation helping people with mental health and addiction issues return to their everyday lives. I have also worked for a bereavement, loss and life changing illness charity and I have been working as a teaching fellow in counselling.

How I work

I work with clients on any issues they wish to bring. I believe the client should set the agenda. I am happy to let the client lead their sessions or be a guide for them if they wish. Everyone is an individual and thus every therapeutic relationship formed is as individual as they are. I offer free 30 minute consultations to discuss your therapy and if I am the right therapist for you, what you wish to achieve and discuss our contract.

I am also a registered and accredited member of the BACP and work within their professional boundaries and guidelines for ethical practise.

Sessions last 60 minutes. I will try to work with you to arrange a session time that suits your schedule.

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.

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.
