About me

You may have reached a point in your life where you’ve come to a crossroads. I would like to help you to discover your own path.

You are not alone if you have been told to “lighten up” or to “just forget about it and move on” by well intentioned friends or family. You may be telling yourself that you should be able to “overcome” what you are feeling or experiencing or you may find it difficult to talk about what you are going through.

We may feel that to ask for help is a sign of weakness or that we are a failure. This makes it incredibly difficult to seek support. In fact talking to someone who is qualified to help is not a sign of weakness or failure but acknowledgement of the fact that we want and have the right to seek meaning in our lives.

Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you to understand the issues that are causing you concern so that you can decide for yourself how best to deal with them. In our sessions you will have the choice to talk about whatever you need to in a non-judgemental and confidential space.

I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor and draw from a range of therapeutic techniques that are personalised to each individual client.  I believe that you know yourself better than anyone so work in a way that assists you to find out what is meaningful to you and your life.

If you would like to arrange an appointment for an initial consultation I am contactable by telephone and/or e-mail. The initial consultation is 50 minutes during which we can discuss what has lead you to counselling/psychotherapy and to talk over any questions you might have.

Following the initial consultation we will agree to a number of sessions to start with. The sessions will be for 50 minutes at the same day and time each week after which you can decide if you wish to continue or you may find the initial sessions have been sufficient.

I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.”- Carl Jung

I look forward to hearing from you and hope to meet you so we can work on how you can choose who you want to become.

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 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.
