I believe that everyone deserves to be supported during times of suffering or difficulty. Life can be tough sometimes and none of us is exempt from experiencing bumps in the road.
Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, feelings of sadness or loss?. Or perhaps you have been through a traumatic and upsetting experience or suffered a bereavement or other loss. I can help with these issues and many more, please know that there is a way forward and we can work together on helping you feel better and find a way to start enjoying life again.
I have a person-centred philosophy which means that I accept you just as you are, I will not judge you regardless of what you tell me and I will empathise and seek to understand not only your circumstances but your personal viewpoint based on your unique life experiences.
I believe that counselling can support you when you need it but it can also equip you for the future. It is my hope that clients complete their counselling feeling more resilient and confident in their ability to cope in challenging times.
I complement my approach with CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) techniques, Transactional Analysis, Solution-Focused approach and coaching in order to best support my clients. I adapt my approach to suit you as a person, I don't expect you to fit into my idea of what would help you. Your sessions are your time, for you!.
Get in touch as we can discuss how I can help you. I am happy to be contacted with any questions you may have.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a first-class degree in Counselling Studies and a Masters Degree with Distinction in Clinical Psychology. I studied at Hull University.
I am a registered member of the BACP register number; 376918
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.
