About me

Things can throw us off course and we can lose ourselves and need support through difficult times. It may just be that you need someone to talk to about what’s going on for you. I can help you by offering a warm and safe space where you will be fully listened to and can explore your emotional difficulties without judgement and at a pace that suits you.

I am based in Chilwell, five minutes from Beeston and easily accessible by car, bus and tram.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience of working with a wide range of mental health problems and clients of all ages. As an integrative counsellor, I work mainly as a person centred counsellor in the sense that you direct the session however I also bring in other approaches to suit your needs.

I hold a degree in Therapeutic Counselling

I subscribe to BACP Ethical framework for good practice and work in the strictest confidence. I am a registered member of the BACP and I am DBS checked.

I have worked as a counsellor in a variety of organisations including those focused on working with trauma and abuse and those which focus on young people between 6 and 25. Having said this, there are many other mental health problems intertwined/linked into this including depression, anxiety, OCD , anger and eating disorders to name but a few.

I believe that developing self love/kindness for ourselves can help with our emotional and mental wellbeing.

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.

Key details

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.
