About me

Hello,

I am an integrative counsellor and I work within a range of theories and practices. I combine my practice with who you are as an individual and what you bring to counselling to find the best way to collaborate.

We often can come up against situations in our lives that test our resilience and ability to cope. We can be so much on the go that we don’t take time to understand what we are feeling. Over time this can lead to a build up of stress, anxiety and despondency.

I bring a warmth and lightness to the relationship providing you a space to de-compress. Giving you time to develop self-awareness to help with the difficulties you are experiencing, whilst also shining a light and building on your strengths.

I am currently taking on new clients so please feel free to contact me to discuss any questions you may have and to make arrangements for counselling.

If you would like to know more about how I work please visit my website:

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.

Wheelchair user access

For any members with disability needs please contact me to discuss telephone or online counselling options. As well as home visits were necessary.
