I am an Integrative Counsellor offering clients 'Person Centred' counselling and psychotherapy, to meet the client's needs in an accepting and non-judgemental environment, where feelings and emotions can be explored. I am a member of the British Association of Counseling and Psychotherapy.
My services are tailored to assist adults, adolescents and children to explore emotions that may affect their lives, impacting on friendships, family relationships, school, college, university and work. Therapy involves using a non-directive and holistic approach to enable the individual to use their own creative instincts to explore and resolve personal issues. I completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Therapy for Children and Families, and enjoy using creative approaches when working with individuals and families.
I am the Founder and Managing Director of Precious Moments & Health Ltd and Precious Counselling and Mentoring Community Interest Company. We provide mentoring and counselling services to organisations as well as personal clients and hope to provide more services within our local community and surrounding boroughs in the near future.
Training, qualifications & experience
After being made redundant from the banking sector after 23 years, I decided to change my profession to become an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I utilised my Psychology degree knowledge, skills and experience gained throughout the years, to assist me in providing therapeutic support to individuals to enable them to move forward in their lives. I love using creative tools during therapy to assist movement and progress for the client alongside the traditional talking therapy.
I have trained a variety of people within the Corporate, Public & Private sector and mentored adolescence and children for over 20+ years. I have delivered Parenting courses within my local community helping parents to learn strategies to assist them in managing their children's behaviors. I believe in the counselling processes and how it can help people to manage their emotions more successfully but I am also aware that not all young people can relate to this form of support. Therefore, I offer therapeutic mentoring services when working with adolescence with challenging behaviours and play therapy for children and young people.
I utilise my Psychology degree to assist me in using the most suitable approach with my clients, whilst developing an understanding of their individual needs.
As the founder and Director of Precious Moments and Health Ltd and Precious Counselling and Mentoring CIC, we have a team of Counsellors and Mentors available to help families within the community and hope to provide more of these services in the future.
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.
