About me

I am an empathetic, approachable and genuine integrative counsellor, with a firm belief in empowering clients, supporting them to achieve growth and healing via a trusting therapeutic relationship that takes into account their social context

From years of experience, I know it is not always easy to give the first step and reach out. An initial informal conversation sometimes can help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you. You can see full details of my services at www.cambiocounselling.co.uk.

Be reassure that, as a counsellor, I will not judge you or tell you what to do. My role is to listen to you in an empathic way and walk alongside you in your journey, helping you to find your own answers, healing and growing at a personal level.

My training as a counsellor has been built upon 15 years’ experience within the fields of Public Health and Community Development, with the last 7 spent working across several GP practices in Sheffield supporting adults with physical and mental health issues. Before training as a Counsellor, I also worked in the voluntary sector, supporting and advocating for people with disabilities and BME communities.

All this experience and knowledge have influenced my holistic approach to counselling. What this means for you is that I will support you and aim to empower you so that you achieve your own goals. In the process, I will take into account your personal circumstances.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
