About me


Are you finding life overwhelming and full of obstacles? I understand that it can be quite a daunting prospect to choose counselling and seek help. If you are suffering from depression, relationship issues, distress or anxiety it can help to talk things through with someone impartial to your situation. I offer counselling in a safe, confidential environment to allow you to explore difficult issues and choices.

I am a firm believer in the importance of the relationship between client and counsellor, it is essential that you feel supported in your distress. In sessions you are encouraged to talk through your concerns. Through listening, understanding and gently questioning, I will endeavour to help you understand yourself and your relationships more thoroughly, enabling you to make meaningful changes going forward.

My training focused on integrative relational counselling, which means that I draw on a range of theories to support our work together and find the ones that seem to work best for you. I have experience in working with adults of all ages, ethnicities and sexual orientations.

I normally wish to see you for a 50 minute session once a week. This can be either short term such as a 8-12-sessions or can be open-ended depending upon your needs.

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.

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.
