About me

About me

I am a female counsellor offering one to one sessions. I work with adults only, both male and female. My particular areas of interest are: depression, anxiety, stress, anger, separation/divorce, loss, domestic abuse, rape and sexual assault, self- esteem and self- worth, spirituality, effects of racism, identity & belonging, adoption issues and personal development. However, many people are unsure of exactly what they would identify as their own particular issue and just feel that, generally, life feels unsatisfactory to them and I am also very much interested in this area.

What you can expect

You can expect to be heard, to be respected and valued.

Your counselling sessions would normally take place weekly and provides a confidential, non-judgemental and safe space in which you can truly be yourself and have the time to focus entirely on you and your concerns.

We would work together to help you to gain a fuller understanding of yourself and your particular difficulties, and how you can get in touch with your inner resources in order to address them.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
