About me

I am a Professional Counsellor Accredited & Registered by the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy. Since qualifying I have worked with a diverse client group bringing various issues, such as depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, addiction, grief and loss, relationship issues. 

At times life events beyond our control can be difficult to deal with, so I offer a confidential, non-judgmental counselling therapy in a safe and calm environment. Depending on the issues the client brings I will use different techniques to help the client find ways of coping, empower them to make positive change and/or identify and reach life changing goals. I have an extensive electronic library of self help tools and worksheets which my clients can benefit from as part of the counselling service.

I use an array of therapeutic models:

  • Person Centred Therapy
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Acceptance & Commitment therapy
  • Solution Focused
  • Mindfulness

I look forward to hearing from 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.

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.

Testimonial

"I have recently just finished a few sessions of counselling with Pauline to assist me with some issues I have been having. I needed help with some of the relationships in my life and have been struggling with commitment. She was a really big help to me, listened throughout, was never judgmental and was always trying to enable me to find a solution to each point I raised. She was calm and friendly and put me at ease.

She gave me some self help tools which included something called 'Mindfullness', a technique focused on breathing and returning your mind to the present. Your breathing is constant and ever-present so by focusing on it you can be in the present which has really helped to clear my mind of all of my worries.

I would recommend Pauline to anyone in the area that needs someone there to just listen to them. She is the friendly face that you need if you are having problems in your personal life and I couldn't recommend her highly enough"

Many thanks

'Pauline has helped me enormously to regain some confidence and become more ‘me’ again after my sons serious accident. She has empowered me to try to help myself, albeit slowly and I am very grateful for that’
LB May 2011

'Pauline put me at ease on our first session. I would most definitely recommend Pauline to anyone. I will miss speaking to her very much, but I think I am now in a position to let Pauline go and to let her help someone else who needs it.
