If you do, I can support you to understand what's happening and put things back into perspective. Together we'll find solutions and strategies that work for you
I work mainly from a person-centred approach but am qualified in using Cognitive Behavioural Techniques.
If you would like to find out more about me or how I work, please feel to call or email me. If you call (07951 104108 or 0141 270 9793) and if I’m not available, I have a confidential answer service and I will get back to you asap, or if its easier, drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond within 24 hours.
It’s really important to me that you choose a therapist who you feel comfortable with. I offer a free half hour telephone or face to face session to explain how I work, get an overview of your issue and discuss how we could work together. If after this, you are happy to book a full appointment then we can arrange that either a weekly or fortnightly, which ever suits you.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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).

Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer evening appointments up to 6.30 pm as well as regular office hours.
My fees are £50 per 50 minute session.
The sessions will normally take place at the same day and time on a weekly basis. However it may be possible to accommodate changes and these can be discussed as necessary. Cancellation of a session should be notified and if less than 24 hours prior, a fee will be charged. Payment can be made by bank transfer before your appointment or cheque or cash on the day.
I firmly believe that for counselling to be helpful and healing and it's important for the therapist and the client to have what I call 'clickability'. I strive to provide a safe space that is non-judgmental and one that helps you to understand what's challenging you at the moment. I also believe that you are the expert in your life and my role is to work with you to help you find your own solutions. To help you make the right choice, I offer a free half hour consultation which can be done face to face or over the telephone.
