About me

Everyone has their unique and individual problems and I can help by providing an opportunity to examine in depth your experience in an objective and non-judgmental environment with the view to explore future possibilities.

My early professional experience as a nurse has equipped me with a genuine, caring attitude and a solid understanding of the importance of confidentiality.

I offer individual counselling sessions designed to help clients work through a variety of psychological difficulties.

I hold a BSc Honors Psychology degree and I am a fully qualified BACP Registered Accredited Counsellor with experience of more than 10 years of counselling.

A special feature of my counselling experience comes from working with the Parents & Carers Council, currently known as Different Ways, where I offered a counselling service and a Befriending Scheme for this charity and offered training in resilience for parents and carers of children with Autism and learning disabilities.

Currently, I work for the NHS within an IAPT service and have done so for the past 5 years.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

Accessibility

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.
