About me

I am an experienced, BACP accredited counsellor offering a humanistic/integrative approach. I can provide counselling for individuals,couples, groups, young people (13-18) and organisations. I believe that counselling within an environment that is non-judgemental, caring, confidential, nurturing and safe a person can attain natural positive growth. I adhere strictly to the BACP professional code of ethics within my practice and I am covered by professional indemnity insurance. My clients are either self referred, referred by their employers (either directly or via Employer Assistance Providers), GP practices or psychiatrists.

I also offer supervision to other counsellors privately and within organisations, student counsellors and psychologists. I describe my supervision as humanistic and integrative but I welcome supervisees with different therapeutic perspectives than my own. I am committed, energetic and enthusiastic about my work. I believe that nurturing openness and honesty in supervision helps the supervisee learn, develop and grow. Supervision of supervision is undertaken in accordance with the BACP code of ethics. I have now obtained Supervision accreditation with The National Counselling Society.

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.
