About me

Are you struggling with difficult feelings? Feeling low and lacking in motivation? Feeling stuck and powerless to change? It is likely that counselling could help you. I am a counsellor with more than 7 years experience working with a wide range of different clients in both private practice and the voluntary setting.

About me:
Before training as a counsellor I had worked in the NHS for more than 20 years mainly in the area of cancer care and life limiting disease. I know from personal experience how daunting it can be to take the step of going for counselling and know what it is like to sit in the clients chair!

My counselling experience has brought me into touch with a wide range of different individuals and continues to fuel my passion for the resources that each one of us has with in us!

When Counselling could help:

You may need some help to get you through a difficult time:
You may be encountering relationship difficulties e.g, separation or divorce, betrayal or affairs or other family issues. Struggling to cope with a bereavement, or coming to terms with a serious or chronic illness or disability. You may be facing a major life change such as redundancy or unemployment.

You may be aware of patterns of behavior that are harming yourself and affecting your relationships with others
:
self harm, alcohol abuse, gambling,
disordered eating e.g anorexia or over eating. You may feel unable to change your patterns of thinking and behaving no matter how hard you try.
You may be anxious, stressed or depressed and these feelings just wont go away.

Perhaps you may be aware of underlying issues which affect you now
: abuse (physical , sexual, neglect, emotional), either in childhood or as an adult. There may be other issues from your past which you know affect the way life is for you now.

Basically you can bring anything that you want to counselling and the truth is most things don't have clear labels .... come as you are and we can untangle things together!


What I can offer you
I can offer you a safe and confidential place for you to bring and talk about what ever is concerning you. I will seek to provide a relationship where you are listened to accepted and understood. A place where you can explore your thoughts and feelings around the difficulties that you are facing. A space where you can begin to work out the way ahead.

The way that I work
I work with your agenda and at your pace.

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.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
