About me

I qualified as a counsellor in 2007 and I'm currently a registered member of the BACP.

Since qualifying, I've worked consistently across various areas of counselling so I have a lot of experience of working with all different kinds of issues like relationship breakdown, family problems, bereavement, abuse, domestic violence, stress, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, work related issues, change management, loss, trauma, sexuality and addictions to name a few.

I'm an integrative counsellor which, in normal speak, just means that I combine different types of therapy to suit the varying needs of the different people that I work with, all of which I am trained in.

Overall I'm very client centred (I work with the issues you want to focus on) whilst remaining solution focussed and I'm generally just a very warm, non-judgemental and confident person.

My priority across the board, is to provide my clients with a confidential and effective environment in which they feel safe, comfortable and able to work through whatever it is that's causing problems in their life.

I provide long-term, short-term, and time limited therapy, this can be either be face to face or via telephone or video calls.

Alongside my ongoing private work, I'm also one of the co-founders of a gambling counselling and consultancy company. We formed the business in 2018 from a combined 20 years of experience working within this capacity, the website listed on my profile here is in relation to this.

Our company provides specialist problematic gambling in the workplace consultancy, training opportunities and counselling packages for companies or organisations and their employees. We also offer counselling for private clients who are either struggling to control their gambling or are affected by another persons gambling addiction.

Training, qualifications & experience

After achieving my BTEC Level 5 Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (completed 2007) I've since built on my skills base with ongoing CPD in areas that include further study on CBT, NLP and Transactional Analysis.

In conjunction with my own private work, I've also worked as an associate counsellor in a private company working with generic client issues that affected individuals ability to work, organisations providing counselling for family issues, addictions agencies and freelance for a company specialising in food addiction, with the aim of getting rid of weight and developing a better relationship with food.

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.
