About me

Hello, I am a person-centered counsellor, qualified in 2007 and qualified supervisor.  I have been teaching Counselling in a local FE for a few years and I am passionate about counselling being a social commitment to support and healing. 

I have worked with issues of drugs and alcohol, depression, family breakdowns, gender, sexuality, childhood sexual abuse and rape. As well as women's health, particularly new mother's mental health and healing. I have also worked in outreach with H.I.V, sexual health, homelessness and mental health within the community. I have a keen interest in neuroscience, the effects of trauma on the brain and the connection between the brain, body and healing.

My ethos as a counsellor is that the individual (s) are central to the session, the lived experience of the person(s) engaging in counselling is valued, held and respected.

I work in a spiritual way, helping you to explore any issues in multiple ways and approaches, placing you at the centre.

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.

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.
