About me

Do you feel 'stuck' in your life?

Perhaps you have unresolved issues from your past that you cannot move on from, or you are having problems understanding yourself or your relationships with others. Here is where Counselling can help.

I am a Relational Therapist whose grounding is in the Person-Centred Approach to counselling, where YOU, the client, are the ultimate expert on your inner world. By working together collaboratively, we will find the answers to the questions you have, thereby empowering you to take charge of your life and make it what you want it to be.

My areas of experience are around Bereavement, Gender Dysphoria, Sexuality, Anxiety Issues, Anger Management, Discrimination and Substance Abuse.

I have regular monthly supervision to ensure that I'm working in the best way to support my clients and I'm also fully ensured to practice privately. I'm a registered member of the BACP which means that you can be assured that I work to their ethical framework.

If you would like to have a free initial consultation, please contact me to arrange a convenient time to talk.

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.

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.

Wheelchair user access

I do not currently offer wheelchair access, hence I can visit you at your home if that is convenient.
