MBACP Accred Counselling Psychotherapist & Supervisor

About me

Ask yourself this question what price would you put on happiness and contentment? Let me help you to ‘speak the unspoken’ in order to help you to help yourself

  • All relationships from heterosexual to same sex couples have the normal day to day up’s and downs of daily living. Sometimes things can go very wrong and when this happens it’s difficult to talk to each other to find out what’s actually happening. This can be a very scary time with lots of assumptions being made which may result in separation if not dealt with in a professional manner.
  • Even if separation is inevitable I can help you cope with the impact this can have on you and also those around you.
  • As a skilled relationship counsellor I am trained to assist and provide you with a caring and supportive environment and to help you find a way through your difficulties either face to face or online.
  • Even if you are not currently in a relationship and want to explore the possibility of moving forward in life and finding that someone special I can help as well.
  • Other areas of counselling support I provide include, trauma, bereavement, low confidence/self esteem, sexuality, depression, emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, stress, work related issues, career guidance.

Now ask the same question again what price would you put on happiness and contentment - don’t suffer in silence.

Types of counselling offered:

  • Online counselling - Zoom, Teams, WhatsApp, Facetime, Skype
  • Telephone

Online

Online counselling provides an opportunity to explore difficulties in a confidential, ethical, and supportive manner.

  • Eliminates commute times and scheduling hassles
  • Is flexible to meets your needs and lifestyles
  • You can engage in therapy in the comfort of your own home or in a location where you have access to a smartphone, laptop, computer and are able to ensure your privacy
  • Online Counselling can be during the day or evening, at a time to suits you

Telephone

You may wish to have telephone counselling as a preference and this can be facilitated when necessary.

It has been my experience that very often individuals and couples delay accessing counselling with their problems/difficulties. The delay is usually to do with trying to deal with the problem through friends and family which ultimately leads to a temporary fix.

Approaches to Counselling

I provide both short-term and long-term counselling in the following approaches

Integrative  -  Working together we use insights and techniques from different  theoretical perspectives

Psychodynamic -  Helps you to bring to the surface your true feelings so that you experience and understand them better

Person Centred  -  Is for you to become able to see yourself as a person with the power and freedom to change and achieve your full potential

Solution Focused  -  You will be encouraged to focus positively on what you do well. To set goals and work out how to achieve them.  It may only take you 3 or 4 sessions to achieve your goal/s.

Experience
I have experience in the field of counselling, relationships, families and guidance and trauma over 20 years. I work with individuals, groups and couples to include same sex. I provide facilitation workshops to groups. Topics include - psychoeducation, team building, career guidance, conflict/war zone and trauma related psychological impact, equality…

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
