About me

Individuals come to counselling for a variety of reasons: stress, anxiety, despair, life changes, relationships, unease, trauma, loss, bereavement and more. Counselling is an opportunity to explore your feelings and talk about anything that may be troubling you, the process can help relieve anxieties and find a personal resolution to your problems. I offer counselling to adults in a non-judgmental and confidential environment.

My counselling approach is Person-Centred, this approach allows clients to work at their own pace, its theory is based on the belief that each individual has the capacity and potential for personal growth, healing and development. I was attracted to training in this modality due to its Humanistic belief that each individual has the inner resources to find their own answers and direction, thus encouraging empowerment. Having worked with short term therapy, I have also used more goal focused approaches.

I have experience of working with the following issues: Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Self-Harm, Diversity, Stress, Eating Disorders, Carers, Relationships, LGBT, Loss, Self-Esteem, Trauma, Sexuality, this is not an exhaustive list.

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.

Accredited register membership

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.
