About me

Hello there my name is Maureen, I am a caring supportive Counsellor registered with the BACP.
I will provide you with a safe confidential space to allow you to explore whatever seems to be troubling you.  
Are you feeling sad or anxious, Is it stopping you getting on with your life.

You may be suffering with anxiety or the loss of a loved one. You may be facing other major life changes and don’t know who to turn to. I will listen to you in a non-judgemental way.
If you are struggling with something, you can talk to me and I can gently support you to explore it further.

I understand how difficult it can be especially coming to see a therapist for the first time, I will ensure you are fully supported and accepted. With my empathic warm approach I can give you a safe secure place where you can feel truly heard. I will respect you as an individual and help you find a solution to your issues.

I will work with you to help you to gain awareness and confidence, you are not alone, I will support you on your journey. 
I have helped many people overcome their anxiety’s and make big changes, Imagine a world free of them and being able to do what you couldn’t before. You can make these changes.

Feel free to call me for a free no obligation chat.

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

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

AccessNI check

AccessNI carries out criminal records checks for individuals working in certain roles in Northern Ireland. Find out more at justice-ni.gov.uk , or contact this professional directly.

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.

I have a room downstairs which is accessible for wheelchair users.
