About me

Hello and welcome ... I appreciate how hard it is taking the first steps into counselling with a counsellor. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space and will be here to guide and offer you support throughout your counselling experience.

Whether you're struggling with managing anxiety, depression, navigating the complexities of grief and loss, resolving conflicts within your family relationships, coping with self-harm tendencies, or anything else that you may be struggling with I offer a safe and supportive environment where we can explore these issues together.

Whether you're facing one specific issue or grappling with a combination of challenges, I am here to offer guidance, support to help you navigate your journey towards healing and self-discovery.

The foundation of my practice lies in the therapeutic relationship. By offering safety, compassion, and respect, I aim to create a space where you feel valued and understood, enabling you to delve deep into your emotions.

I have experience of working with clients of all ages, from varying backgrounds. I have worked with several local charities along with working in several local schools. I have experience of a wide range of issues a person may have, which includes anxiety, depression, bereavement, family problems, health worries, menopause and life transitions, along with many other areas of work.

Practice description

I work from a person-centred framework meaning I work with you, at your pace and completely guided by you throughout all the sessions. It's your space to use as you want to, you are the expert of you.

Using the counselling relationship allows you the opportunity to further understand yourself and how you relate to others.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).

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.

My Counselling room is located on the ground floor with access to a disabled parking space and toilet facilities.
