About me

Hello, I'm a trained counsellor who works in various areas of therapy including childhood abuse and trauma. I also work very closely with mental health issues including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and the feelings of loss, this can mean many things such as bereavement, job loss, and friendships. I would like to work with you at your own pace to help you find a way to unravel and understand the issues that are concerning you. These issues could be from the past, present or forthcoming future events. I will offer you a safe, trusting and confidential space to discuss your concerns, worries and behaviours. I will listen and work with you to find and explore ways that will help you move forward.

I know from personal experience it can be difficult to take the first step and reach out for counselling.  I also know that it is important that you find the right counsellor that helps you feel safe and heard in a trusting therapeutic relationship.

I offer a free half hour non-obligatory telephone call.  This phone call will give us both a chance to see if we could work together and discuss any questions that you may have.

Please feel free to get in touch.

Many thanks Rhonda.

Member organisations

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.

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.
