About me

As a qualified Counsellor I am able to help with issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement and addictions amongst others. However, my Person-Centred approach does not exclude other problems or issues which may affect us at some time in our lives and I work with each individual to deal with the issues affecting them.

I am trained in an “Integrative” style which means I can choose from a range of ways of working. This could include, for example, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt, using elements of creative therapies or Transactional Analysis (TA). We can decide between us which approach works best for you.

Being a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I work within their standards of safe and ethical practice and I hope that each client will feel safe in the knowledge that their best interests are at the heart of everything that I and the BACP do.

I am currently not seeing clients face to face due to the health situation but am happy to offer telephone or video counselling.

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.

Further information

Person-centred therapy

- also known as person-centred counselling or client-centred counselling - is a humanistic approach that deals with the ways in which individuals perceive themselves consciously rather than how a counsellor can interpret their unconscious thoughts or ideas. The client is the expert in their own life experience not the therapist.

Created in the 1950s, the person-centred approach ultimately sees human beings as having an innate tendency to develop towards their full potential. However, this ability can become blocked or distorted by our life experiences - particularly those that affect our sense of value.

Integrative Therapy

- or integrative counselling is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. Each person needs to be considered as a whole, and counselling techniques must be tailored to their individual needs and personal circumstances.

Essentially, integrative counsellors are concerned with tailoring therapy to their clients and not the client to the therapy

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.

Wheelchair user access

If you would have difficulty climbing stairs I may be able to arrange a more accessible venue. Call me to discuss your needs.
