Do you feel alone and misunderstood? Do you feel there is no one you can talk to who will keep your confidence and understand how you are feeling? If you make the decision to come and share those feelings with me, I will offer you a safe, confidential and supportive space where you can talk freely and where you will be listened to without judgement. An environment where you can be yourself and where you don't have to pretend that everything is OK. Making the decision to come for a counselling session is the first positive step in improving your mental health.
I accept everyone without blame or labels, with compassion, respect and professionalism. I do hope you come and see me because when we work together exploring your feelings, you can become empowered to bring about changes which will help you manage the way you live your life.
You can either call or email me to arrange an initial session. If you are happy to continue, we will set up a second session and thereafter meet at the same time each week or fortnight for either short term or long term counselling - whichever is required. Sessions cost £40.00 per hour.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified person-centred counsellor with six years experience, working with clients from all walks of life. My clients have suffered relationship issues, bereavement, anxiety and depression. I have an ABC Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am Registered Member of the BACP.
In addition, I can help by offering you a natural, non-judgemental warmth and kindness combined with a strong sense of empathy and understanding of the way you feel.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
