About me

I fully recognise that deciding that you might need/want to see a counsellor can feel like a big step, but even just looking at this directory is the first step. My role as a counsellor is to support you, and provide you with a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space in which you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

I am an experienced counsellor, who has worked with children and adults both within the public sector and also within a charitable organisation.

As a person centred counsellor, the counselling sessions I offer are client-led, meaning that I will value you throughout the counselling process and that we will work together on the things which you feel are most important. Your counselling sessions will move at a pace which suits you and together we will find a way of working which feels right for you.

My values as a counsellor include warmth, openness, respectfulness and humour, meaning that I work in a friendly, down-to-earth way to build a strong therapeutic relationship with you so that you feel safe to talk about, and explore whatever's going on for you.

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.

Key details

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.
