About me

Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. My name is Michelle, and I am a registered integrative counsellor.

Are you currently struggling? feel like life is overwhelming you? Are you feeling sad anxious, lonely, stuck? Maybe you need help moving forward from hurt or have experienced trauma? Perhaps you are in a relationship and have issues with commitment or infidelity and would like relationship or couples counselling? whatever the issue! I am here to listen and support you by providing a safe friendly environment and non-judgmental space for you to feel heard and to explore your issues, whether past or present. As an integrative counsellor I will use a range of approaches to help and support your understanding of the issue and we will work together towards a happier version of yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

As an integrative counsellor I have experience of dealing with a lot of highly complex issues. I have an accredited couples counselling qualification, and I have over 10 years’ experience in building self-esteem and confidence, as well as working with children and families.
I am a skilled trainer and deliver various training workshops on mindset and empowerment, moving forward, as well a parental conflict and safeguarding.

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.

ACC
Association for Christian Counsellors (ACC)

The Association of Christian Counsellors and Linked Professions is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK. The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.

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.
