About me

It can feel difficult to know which counsellor to choose, therefore I offer a free on-line or in-person consultation to help you decide and answer questions you may have.

There comes a point in many of our lives when things feel too much. If you are reading this I suspect you’ve reached, or are feeling very close to this point. When we are feeling like this, for whatever the reasons may be, it can be difficult to know who to turn to or perhaps to even believe anyone can help.

If you’ve never had counselling before it may feel like a daunting and confusing place to enter. Along with this, there is often the fear of, what will I say, where will I start, how can it help me or I’m not sure my problems are that bad. My initial role is to make you feel at ease, lessen your anxieties and allow you to feel safe and confident enough to open up and express your thoughts and worries with me. Then, together we can address these difficulties.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
