About me

Welcome to Willow Tree Counselling Service, I am a well grounded and qualified therapeutic counsellor and supervisor with an easy going, genuine and honest approach to life that enables me to communicate and build trust within relationships with people from all walks of life and I believe that everybody should be treated equally and have the opportunity to reach their full potential within society.

As a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy BACP, I work within their ethical framework offering individual counselling in a variety of ways and approaches that enables me to offer long or short term counselling dependent on the client's needs.

I have a vast military background having served over 10 years in HM Forces giving me the ability to connect, relate and emphasize with the daily issues and struggles that many Serving men and woman, Ex- Forces and their families encounter.

I also have vast experience of working with children, young people and vulnerable adults facing many issues in life from abuse, anxiety, Bereavement, depression, family/relationship issues, social issues, mental illness, low self-esteem, victims of crime and substance misuse to name a few.

The service also provides counselling within both primary and secondary mainstream schools as well to young people within an alternate education setting.

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.
