About me

Hi, I’m Natalie. I am a BACP registered Counsellor & Psychotherapist. I am a School Counsellor, Student Mental Health Mentor and run my practice, counselling Adults & Young People. 

My Approach 

Regardless if you are an adult or young people, asking for help can be daunting, especially if this is the first time you may have considered counselling. As a pluralistic counsellor, my top priority is working with you to help you understand what has brought you to counselling and explore ways overcome or make sense of these challenges. 

By considering a range of therapeutic approaches, I will ensure that each session is tailored to your own needs and preferences rather than offering a 'one size fits all' approach. I will ensure that together, we are working in a way that feels right for you. This is your journey and I am here to support you. 

The list of reasons why people come into counselling is endless. From anxiety, depression and other mental health challenges to relationship issues, trauma or just a feeling that something isn't quite right, I believe there is no right or wrong reason to seek support. I will always offer you a safe, non-judgemental space, respecting the pace you need to go at. 

I see individuals as worthy of validation, with the potential to grow and evolve, regardless of past experience. We all have a unique journey in life and it is my own journey that is my ‘why’ for being in the profession today. 

A Note on Counselling Young People

As a school counsellor at both primary and secondary schools, I witness first-hand the challenges that our Children and Young People are experiencing with their mental health and wellbeing. 

With the relationship at the core of counselling, I strive to provide an environment where young people can feel safe and express themselves. I draw on interventions which incorporate play and creativity, therapeutic tools, strategies and activities to aid conversation and help them make sense of the challenges they are facing. It can be difficult for young people to talk about their feelings - so I aim to make this as comfortable as possible. 

*Please note, I offer a free 30-minute initial assessment online for both adults and young people. Parents / caregivers are welcome to attend.*

Member organisations

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.

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.
