MA, Accredited Registered MBACP - Stepping into Counselling

About me

**COVID-19 Update**
 I am offering telephone, online (zoom) and face to face counselling.

Hi and welcome.  There are times within our lives where we experience challenges and difficulties and feel unable to cope and just simply need to talk to someone other than family and friends in order to really feel heard, accepted, respected and understood. At these times speaking to an impartial, non judgemental professional counsellor can be helpful.

A counsellor will not give you advice or tell you what you should do or should not do, but will listen to you carefully and try to understand your situation from your point of view and try to help enable you to explore your feelings and thoughts and reflect upon what is happening within your life.

I am an experienced Integrative Psychotherapist, Couples Counsellor, Clinical Supervisor,  EMDR Therapist and trained in EFT.  I am based in Brighton, with experience of both short and long term counselling. Being integratively trained means that I have knowledge of different counselling theories, which I can use and adapt to fit the clients individual needs.

I am very passionate about the potential for counselling to bring about positive change within our lives. I would like to provide you with a confidential, non judgemental and accepting space, and this space would be solely yours and a place where you can explore your emotions, issues and difficulties, and express your thoughts and feeling.

It is my heartfelt intention to make a genuine connection with you and to develop a counsellor/client relationship that is built upon reciprocal trust, as the relationship between me and you lies at the heart of the work. I aim to offer you a relationship free from the experiences of your past, which at the same time allows you to explore your past experiences and relationships within a warm, secure, supportive and safe environment.

I work collaboratively with couples helping enable them to develop an awareness and undertaking of their deeper issues, which underline the problems that they are facing, along with awareness of practical interventions they can make to break negative patterns.

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.

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.
