My counselling profile
I am a qualified counsellor / CBT therapist and I am able to offer a confidential and professional counselling service that enables individuals to work through and overcome difficult issues including:
Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Phobias, Panic Disorder, Family Issues, Anger Management, Rape & Sexual Abuse, Abuse, Bereavement, Separation & Divorce, Trauma, Eating Disorders, Abortion, Low Self-Esteem, Stress, Self-Harm or anything that is important to you.
I work one-on-one to help uncover the source of stress, pain, resentment, frustration etc. in a person's life and help clients determine goals and set into motion a plan to create and sustain positive change.
A therapist is someone who has professional training to listen and offer a safe non-judgemental space, in which to work through problems and will encourage you to explore, to grow and to develop the skills you need to resolve difficult issues.
I have trained as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, but I find my interventions are integrative including; cognitive behavioural therapy and creative work, this allows me to work with clients in ways which best suit them and their needs.I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work within their professional and ethical guidelines, which include regular supervision.
I work within Coventry (near Coventry railway station) and can offer daytime, evening and Saturday morning appointments.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
