About me

Are you struggling with distressing, difficult or painful feelings? Do you sometimes feel low or anxious? Are you feeling confused, or at a crossroads in your life? Do you feel stuck?

We can all feel like this sometimes. Counselling can provide an opportunity to talk openly to someone about those things in life that don't make sense, make you worried, anxious, depressed, angry etc. A counsellor will listen, without judgement  and help you to explore these feelings and emotions.

I am an attachment-focused, humanistic counsellor, meaning I work in a very gentle, non-directive way, placing much emphasis on building a solid, safe and secure relationship between us as a foundation for exploration.

Counselling can help a person learn new ways of relating to themselves as well as to those close to them. Often I find that a persons early relational environment has an impact on current relationships and exploring this can help us make sense of who you are today, why you might behave in the ways you do, especially in relationships and can help to recognise patterns that may be holding you back or causing you distress and which you may want to modify or change. I believe in helping a client reconnect to their inner, wiser self, that part of us that can become obscured for many and varied reasons.

From my own experience, I know how daunting it can be to choose a counsellor to work with. For this reason I want to tell you a little about myself to help you decide if I am the right person for you to work with.

I am a warm, gentle-natured, caring, friendly and approachable person.I come to counselling from a 25 year nursing career, having recognised my desire to be able to provide greater emotional help to individuals. During my career I have had the privilege of meeting countless people, witnessing and supporting emotional highs and lows, as well as offering a listening ear when needed. I have had the opportunity to be with people through challenging or frightening processes such as surgery or serious illness and even death. I recognise that emotional help can make a huge difference to a person's experience. I am passionate about working with people and in particular about how counselling can help in difficult or challenging times.

Please feel free to call me for a no-obligation conversation prior to making an appointment.

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.
