I understand that seeking counselling for the first time can be daunting. Life can be overwhelming and difficult to make sense of on our own sometimes. Often people don't know where to go for support. Through counselling, you can explore your problems in a confidential and safe space without judgement. Through building a trusting and open relationship where you feel truly heard and understood I believe that we all have the potential to grow and heal.
I feel honoured to work in this field and value each and every one of my clients. I genuinely believe in the value of counselling and admire those who take the courage to reach out for help. Please feel free to telephone me to discuss how we can work together and with any questions.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a person-centred counsellor my aim is to really understand what it is like to be you and to work through any presenting issues in a non-judgemental and empathic way.
My specialisms are working with domestic abuse, depression and anxiety, I have also had extensive experience in working with many other presenting issues.
I am able to work in creative and flexible ways. I have over ten years of experience working with learning disability and autism and can adapt counselling techniques to be fully accessible.
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.
