Sometimes we all need support when life feels hard, overwhelming or disappointing. Psychotherapy can be a source of support and comfort whilst you make sense of these issues.
I offer both short and long-term therapy for anyone going through a difficult time or working through other challenges you may be experiencing. I provide a safe, non-judgemental and welcoming environment in which to explore the issues that are troubling you.
I am very passionate about my work and believe in therapy whole heartedly. This I am sure, reflects in my work which has included counselling for charity organisations and working in the voluntary sector.
Choosing a counsellor can be a difficult decision for some. This alone can be challenging in itself. To help with this, I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss your issues, talk about what you would like to gain from therapy and for you to decide if I am the right therapist for you, prior to you making your decision.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a wide range of experience of working with all types of issues clients may have such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, sexual abuse, psychological/emotional/physical abuse, PTSD, trauma, relationship breakups, low confidence or self-esteem, see more extensive list below……….
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
