About me

* I am currently available for face to face, online or telephone sessions for new and existing clients*
Hello, my name is Michaela, I am a counsellor working online, telephone or face to face sessions in a private counselling room based in a countryside location.  I am within easy reach of Shrewsbury, Telford, Wellington and the surrounding areas. I also offer telephone and online counselling to those outside this area or who can not travel.

Covid 19 - for face to face sessions, I am taking precautions to keep risk to a minimum. I am cleaning the room with anti-viral and anti bacterial spray, providing hand sanitisers and providing tissues in packets to take home. If you have any concerns, please feel free to ask for more information.

Making the first step towards finding a counsellor can be daunting, I offer a warm, friendly welcome to put you at your ease from the start.

As a person centered counsellor I believe in the potential of everyone. It is a way of counselling that puts the client in the driving seat of what we talk about and where we go. Its a safe, supportive environment to explore the problems you face. This exploration can help you make connections, see the bigger picture and find ways around the things that may be blocking you from moving on from whatever is troubling you.

I enjoy helping people and watching them progress to where they want to be. I can help with low self esteem, low confidence or self worth, bereavement, loss, grief, major life changes, anxiety, depression, anger issues, support you through caring for others, relationship issues, family conflict as well as other issues.

I work with couples and also work with individuals who are struggling with their relationship, but the other partner does not wish to come.

I offer an online service to those that are self isolating so they can access counselling, potentially being able to have face to face counselling at a later date if located nearby.

My online service is for anyone in the UK.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have a lot experience with supporting clients who are leaving I unhealthy relationships. I fully understand the nature and difficulties involved with moving on.
I also help clients who are going through the family court system. It can help to have a space to vent, grieve, cry and talk through your feelings whilst going through these traumatic experiences.
