NOW USING ONLINE/PHONE COUNSELLING AS WELL AS FACE TO FACE
I understand that counselling may feel daunting at first but I will provide you with a non-judgemental, compassionate, calm and understanding environment so you can talk through any issues you have and together we can find solutions.
Anxiety can be debilitating at its worst but is something that can be managed well.
Depression can make life feel like there is no hope but counselling can help a person see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.. I genuinely believe it is the relationship between counsellor and client that makes counselling work at its best.
You may be struggling with a recent or past bereavement, stress, Anxiety, Depression, relationship issues, OCD, suicidal thoughts, lack of self-esteem, lack of assertiveness, autistic spectrum disorders, whatever your issue may be, I will offer you a safe, supportive environment so we can work through your issue(s) together.
So please get in touch to see what I can offer you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Qualified Counsellor and Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I have experience counselling adults, and also young people (aged 11-18) with varying mental health issues. I also have experience of bereavement counselling of adults working at Cruse. I worked for 2 years as a counsellor at a secondary school where I also counselled parents and I have my own private practice counselling both adults and young people over 18 for many years with diverse issues.
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.

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).

My psychotherapy training is Person Centred and CBT but I have a more Integrative approach using lots of different techniques to find solutions to a client’s issues. I am also trained in Mindfulness and Relaxation techniques which help with the physical as well as the mental aspects of mental health. Another specialist area of mine is assertiveness training which is about respecting your own needs and the needs of others, and lies inbetween being passive or aggressive. It is a skill that assists us to be composed in heated situations and a respected communicator and listener.
