About me

I am a qualified, experienced Counsellor, with a wide experience of working with all age groups; including children and young people and couples. As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I adhere to their Ethical Framework; their standards and guidelines.

I am passionate about the benefits of counselling having seen the changing impact it has had on clients. Providing a confidential, professional and safe service; I feel that my approach is warm, empathic and supportive.

Life can sometimes become overwhelming with everyday problems, unresolved issues or past trauma affecting how we feel or cope in the present. It can be difficult to know where to go or who to turn to. Talking, being listened to and trying to gain understanding or acceptance of problems or life events can mean life can be different going forward. I do not have the answers, but hope through a trusting, collaborative relationship my clients are able to find new perspective or understanding of their current situation.

My training is Humanistic Integrative and I use Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) Therapies and skills appropriate to individual client's needs, whether minor or more complex issues. I am able to offer both short and long term counselling.

I have much experience of working with children and young people, having previously worked in Parenting and Family Support roles and through my counselling within university and college settings. I am passionate about the need for children and young people to be ‘heard’ and feel able to talk openly to make sense of their problems and find confidence in themselves.

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.
