About me

Are you struggling to 'keep it all together' at the moment with things as they are?  Maybe you feel like you're in a situation that you see no way out of and are feeling overwhelmed.

Whatever is troubling you at the moment, I can help you to explore your feelings so that you can understand yourself better and pave the way for change.  Working in a person-centred way, I can help you on the path to reaching your full potential.  I also offer walk and talk therapy if that is something you feel you would prefer.

I offer weekly or fortnightly sessions at a time that is convenient for you and we can discuss this together.  I realise it can be daunting reaching out, but I assure you that you will be met with compassion.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed a BA (Hons) degree in Humanistic Counselling. I have worked with young people aged 11 - 16, for fourteen years, and young adults aged 16-25 for the last two years.  Whilst I am experienced in working with young people, I am trained and qualified to work with people of all ages, with all manner of issues.  I am a qualified Youth Mental Health First Aider.  I have a current enhanced DBS certificate.

I have attended numerous training courses:

Youth Mental Health First Aid, Level 3 Outdoor First Aid, child protection, autism awareness, safeguarding, attachment disorder, prevent duty, self-harm, behaviour management, child exploitation, Adverse Childhood Experiences, foetal alcohol syndrome, surviving teens, suicide awareness.

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.

Key details

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.

Toilet available. Social distancing. Antibacterial hand gel provided.
