About me

I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor who is an accredited member of the BACP. I have been working in private practice in the area for over a decade. Helping clients deal with a wide range of life's issues including ..anxiety, depression, panick attacks, anger, relational problems, and bereavement. [see full list].

DIscribing how you work is always a little tricky; listing the modality that the therapist uses (person centred, psychodynamic, CBT, and many others) does not really inform the client of how the work will be, and what values the therapist hold or what they consider important when working with the client. So....

I believe the client is the expert on themselves, after all they have lived with themselves for a life time. However I have thousands of client hours work and like to think that I know something about the process of therapy, and how it works. Putting the two together is a good start.

I believe the relationship between therapist and client is relative to a positive out come. Being real or authentic (both parties) is important.

In early childhood we develop many life patterns and implicit assumptions that may have served us well at that time; but in later years some become redundant or even toxic. It's possible that as an adult, these can effect our future life and relationships. Though change over time is possible.

It's imprtant that both sides of our brain are considered, and listened to. Our left brain for cognition and order, our right for emotions/feelings. I would encourage self care,finding time for yourself, being heard, building a support network.

In my non counselling life I have worked in various management roles [regional managers] developing skills and training, motivational speaking,and team building.

Member organisations

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.

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.

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.
