About me

There are times when we struggle to cope with certain aspects of our lives, and we can feel sad and alone with our problems, talking to a counsellor can help. As a qualified Integrative Counsellor and member of the BACP, I believe a trusting supportive therapeutic relationship that is full of empathy and acceptance can provide a safe and collaborative place to process thoughts and feelings. I can help you explore your difficulties and look at how your past may be influencing your present, encourage and enable you to move forward with greater insight and awareness which in turn can help with self-acceptance and change. I work with a variety of issues including anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, bereavement & loss, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, self-worth, trauma and attachment and have experience in counselling adults and young people and also those with Asperger’s Syndrome.

As an Integrative counsellor I draw from various theoretical approaches including Humanistic approaches like Person Centered and Gestalt, Psychodynamic and some CBT aspects along with the use of creative methods to aid in therapeutic exploration, all to suit you and your needs. The most important aspect of my counselling practice is the relationship co-created between therapist and client.

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.
