At times we can find it hard to express how we feel, or even locate what emotions we are feeling. If you want to be able to come to a place where you can feel able to express yourself, be honest and feel a better sense of well-being, coming to counselling could be the place to start. Whether you have a specific goal, a problem or feel like you don't know where to start, that's okay, talking can help you get there.
The way I work is to put you, the client at the center, to offer you the space to explore, talk and offer you the warmth and comfort to do that in. I hold honesty and integrity at the heart of my work and truly believe that through offering my true self I offer my clients the space to be their true selves.
Each of us have our own difficulties in life, no two people are the same, valuing where you are in your life and how events have effected you with the help of a counsellor can help to bring clarity and motivation. I offer a patient, gentle, supportive way of working ensuring our relationship is a solid base for moving forward therapeutically.
I am not currently working face to face due to covid restrictions.
I am happy to offer walk and talk, video or telephone counselling
Training, qualifications & experience
- CPCAB Level 4 Diploma - Therapeutic counselling
- BA in Youth Work and Theology
During my training I worked for Heart to Heart which gave me the opportunity and privileged of working alongside clients with a broad variety of reasons for coming to counselling and a wide age range from 18 years.
My qualification in counselling means that the way I work can help people with most of life's issues.
I also have a career in helping people with hoarding tendencies and know that counselling can assist those struggling to let go of items, slow down the acquirement of items, and start making space in the home.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£40 per session (50 mins) at The Flamingo Center or at your home (depending on where you live)
I offer an initial 30 minute session for £15 which gives you the opportunity to meet me, get a feel for how we can work together.
I occasionally have reduced rate sessions @ £30, however I do not have availability for these sessions currently. If you fall into the co cession catagory please ask as these sessions do come available.
