About me

How are you feeling today? Are circumstances getting you down? Are your feelings and emotions overwhelming you? Are you feeling stuck on what to do or how to take that first step to feeling better? Having someone to talk to can help you to make decisions and enable you to take control back.

What can I do to help? I offer a confidential, therapeutic, safe and calm space for long term or short term sessions.  Face to face, online and telephone sessions available.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Integrative therapist which means I use a mixture of techniques from different modalities where i have had experience and training in, these are: Psychodynamic, Person-centred, Attachment, CBT, Gestalt, Humanistic, Mindfulness, Meditation, working within environments which offer support surrounding these areas: trauma, domestic abuse, addiction, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem and bereavement.

I have qualifications in CBT and counselling and have graduated. I am a registered member of BACP and I am working towards accreditation, and furthering my Continuing professional development attending courses, such as a 'working with children and young people's mental health' and Colour therapy and mindfulness.

Prior to Counselling I have worked in different sectors of the care industry and I believe I can offer empathy, care and an understanding that you deserve.

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.

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.
