MBACP (Accred) Counsellor, EMDR Therapist & Clinical Supervisor

About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and provide a friendly, warm, confidential, and accepting environment to enable you to work through the things that may be troubling you. This could be depression, bereavement, anxiety, abuse, addictions, sexual abuse, eating disorders, grief, loss, stress, trauma, low self esteem, redundancy or relationship issues.

I work as an integrative counsellor and my base is the Person-Centred approach. The approach is based on the belief that we all have the capacity to grow and change and move forward in our life. My aim is to offer a safe, warm and accepting environment, in which you can explore your experiences, gaining insight & understanding of yourself.

I also work as an EMDR therapist, the mind can often heal itself naturally, in the same way the body does. Much of this natural coping mechanism occurs during sleep, particularly during REM sleep. EMDR utilises this natural procession order to successfully treat Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). EMDR has been used to effectively treat a wide range of mental health problems, such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, stress, phobias, sleep problems, complicated grief, additions, pain relief.  EMDR offers a way of processing painful memories without re-traumatising or reliving the event.   

I offer long term counselling as well as short term solution focused counselling, if you need further information about counselling or have any questions about either types of counselling please feel free call me or email me and I will be happy to talk it through with you.

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)

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.

Clinical Supervision

Are you looking for a collaborative and supportive approach to developing both yourself and your practice?

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Supervisor and appreciate the value of helping individuals emerge as the therapist they are, building on their lived experience and theoretical background.

I offer clinical supervision to both experienced therapists and trainees. I have worked as a clinical supervisor within the NHS. I also provide group supervision.

I seek to work collaboratively with you as a therapist and help you to become all that you aspire to be as a counsellor and / or psychotherapist. We can create a bespoke way of working together that supports your changing needs as a therapist. Whether you work privately or as part of an organisation my aim is to support you so that you can work in a way that meets your clients needs.

I aim to support you in your work as a therapist and help you reflect on your individual client work, your overall therapeutic practice and your continuing professional development. I offer a supportive environment to allow you the space to review your caseload and your own reactions to your work with clients.

We can explore together

- Your challenges and dilemmas
- How you feel about your client work and how the work leaves you feeling
- Individual Cases, how you feel you are progressing with them
- Your own personal development, if your feeling stuck or conflicted professional and need support in knowing what your next step may be.

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.
