FdA Counselling (MBACP)

About me

I am an integrative counsellor who tailors my therapeutic skills and knowledge to find a collaborative and suitable way of working with you as a unique individual.

I can help you understand underlying issues and gain awareness of relationship patterns you may have developed and of your own real self.

I am understanding and empathetic and have experience working with children, adolescents and adults.

I can help you develop autonomy and resilience as well as helping you to understand your feelings. I can work with you if you need support with anxiety, panic disorders, depression, attachment, relationship difficulties,  stress or with why you are feeling sad. Working through these challenges can bring a more secure and content life.

Understanding and managing emotions, fears and anxieties in life can be difficult to do on your own. My practice is diverse and inclusive and I offer a warm, safe and confidential space for exploration, which can make a life changing difference.

I do understand that getting started can be daunting. I also believe that counselling should be available to everyone, which is why I believe in providing a low cost, affordable service. If you feel now is the right time for you, and you are ready,  you can get in touch by email, text message, or by phone, to set up an initial free session, so we can talk about what you want to get out of counselling. If you are happy and feel comfortable, we can then arrange a suitable time for a second session and can arrange either weekly or fortnightly sessions based on your needs.

Member organisations

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.
