About me

I offer short term and open ended counselling to individuals and I am experienced in working with children, young people and adults who have come for counselling for many different reasons.

I'm a member of the B.A.C.P (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and also a member of the Children and Young People division of the B.A.C.P.

I work in an integrative way, which means that I will use the approach which fits best with the client, depending on what they have come to counselling for. For example, bereavement counselling will be different from someone wishing to overcome a phobia and counselling children will involve play therapy, so depending on the age and need of the client the counselling will vary.

I will not give you advice or tell you what to do but support you in finding your own way, without judgement and will listen and reflect what is said, giving you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings about yourself and your relationships with others. We can work together through personal, psychological or emotional problems.

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.

Concessions:

If you are a student, unemployed or are on a low income I would still like to hear from you as I believe that everyone should have access to counselling. I have two concessionary places, subject to availability, for which we can negotiate a reduced price.
