About me

ARE YOU FINDING LIFE CHALLENGING?

​Feeling anxious, depressed, stressed; struggling to cope with a bereavement or the ending of a relationship; or feeling alone and confused ?  Counselling offers a safe, confidential space for you to share your experiences and explore your feelings.  Talking can help you challenge existing perspectives,  make some changes or set some goals.

My work as a qualified counsellor draws on the quality of the therapeutic alliance to build a trusting relationship where you feel supported and valued. As you explore  how events past and present have impacted on your life, we can work together to process difficult emotions, helping you to cope and feel in better control of your life.

Since the relationship between client and therapist is key, it is important to find the right counsellor for you.  I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation so that you are free to decide whether we can work together before you commit to counselling.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
