About me

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member (MBACP) of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists working in the Birmingham area. Integrative counselling means my therapeutic model integrates features from different theories of counselling, according to your need so its tailored to you.

I have experience of working with adults with a variety of issues from anxiety,depression, relationship issues, struggling to get back to work, low confidence or self esteem, bereavement and loss.

If you are struggling with life, feeling sad or just having a blip and need a helping hand then I can help. Take the first step and give me a call, text or email to arrange an assessment session where we can meet and discuss your therapy needs and how we can work together in counselling sessions.

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.
