Have you ever felt that life is just too difficult sometimes? That you are struggling to cope with situations that have occurred or that you are going through? You just feel lost? Lonely?
Me too! I also know how hard it can be to seek help while having the fear of being judged.
I can offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to talk and to help you work out the right path for you. I'm a qualified CBT therapist (cognitive behavioural therapist) and a registered member of the BACP. I have experience of working with children, young people and adults with a wide range of issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a foundation degree in counselling and psychotherapy and I'm currently doing my BA (hons) in Counselling. I have experience in complex loss and bereavement, anxiety, depression, anger, guilt and shame.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer 50 minute sessions at the rate of £55. All payments must be paid 24 hours before the session by bank transfer.
Cancellations must be made 24 hours before or a fee of £20 will be charged to cover the cost of the room hire.
I currently only have availability on Fridays.
I offer a free 20 minute consultation over the phone so that we can have an initial chat and for you to make sure that you are comfortable with what I offer, and to ask questions, before deciding whether to continue.
