About me

I am a BACP registered and experienced psychotherapist working with a wide range of issues which include anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, anger management, bereavement and parenting skills. I offer the first short session for free so that clients have the opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for them.

I know it can be very scary and difficult to talk about your problems/issue, revisit those painful memories and to express your feelings. Sometimes it’s hard to recognize our own feelings. I offer a safe space for you to talk and express your feelings. I offer a professional, supportive, confidential, nonjudgmental and ethical therapy in order to help with your presenting issues.

Counselling helps you to understand yourself better. Helps you to find better coping strategies to deal with day to day difficulties you might be facing at the moment. Talking to someone who is not related to you in anyway helps you to relax and open up about your issues.

Whether you are struggling with difficult life issues or wanting to make changes in your life, I tailor the counselling sessions to suit your own personal needs. This is your space. You and I will work together to help you access your own resources to make the choices that bring greater self-awareness, self-empowerment and effectiveness in the world. You have all your answers within. My job is to help you to find them. I have been helping individuals and making a real difference to their lives.

I work with short term, long term and telephone clients. The sessions are weekly, at the same time and at the same place. The duration of each session is one hour.

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.

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.
