About me

My training and indeed philosophy come from a person centered perspective, however I am qualified in both CBT and Brief Therapy approaches.

I offer a quiet space which is professional, friendly and confidential. A place where you can be heard and really listened to in times of difficulty, worry or confusion.

I offer a service that is free from any judgement but with congruence and empathic understanding.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a L5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. In addition I have also qualified in the following:

Trauma; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Solution Focused Brief Therapy; Counselling Children and Young People, Couples Counselling and ASIST level 3 in suicide awareness and prevention.

I am fully accredited with the National Counselling Society (NCS) and insured through Howden Pro. I am also a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have worked with organisations both in Coalisland and Dromore offering counselling services for local doctors surgeries, local community mental health teams, women's aid, churches and local businesses.

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.

Further information

As a Sports Therapist, and now as a counsellor, I have over two decades of working and treating athletes and sports teams, both professional and amateur across Northern Ireland and beyond.

As well as dealing with the physical, I was continually faced with the psychological issues facing these injured athletes. I understand the problems they face, the worries they have and ultimately the decisions they have to make for their future if the injury is of a serious enough nature that it may mean retirement.

I also have a background and deep understanding of Trauma and specifically PTSD. I have researched Vicarious Trauma specific to legal advocates in Northern Ireland as well as its impact on other groups within this society.

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.
