Adult & Children's Counsellor

About me

During this time, I am currently working remotely and am able to offer online and telephone sessions. 

Thank you for visiting my profile. I am a qualified and experienced therapist/counsellor and I work with individual adults, adolescents, children and families. I offer a counselling service to adults, couples and families, to support with emotional difficulties including separation, depression, anxiety and relationship issues. I offer regular meetings in a safe and supportive environment, within a professional setting.

I specialise in the following areas of counselling:

Counselling for Adolescents and Young people experiencing:

  • Behavioural problems.
  • Difficulty in forming friendships.
  • Problems within family relationships.

Therapeutic play/Play therapy for children who:

  • Have suffered trauma, loss, separation.
  • Have experienced anxiety/phobias.
  • Appear to be withdrawn or depressed.
  • Who have suffered due to separated or divorced parents or the absence of a parent.

How long does counselling take?

Sometimes it may take a few sessions to help an individual or family find their way at other times difficulties are more complicated and we work for longer to find the best solutions.

How does it help?

Counselling can help when we feel overwhelmed, not sure what to do for the best or feel 'stuck' in repeated patterns of behaviour.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to 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.
