About me

*ALL WORK IS VIA ONLINE THERAPY OR TELEPHONE THERAPY AT PRESENT*

It takes courage to seek counselling... I understand this and would like to reassure you; my priority is to ensure you feel valued, accepted and respected.

I understand and respect that each client is unique, has walked their own path, with their own story to tell... I feel privileged to be a part of that journey and aim to enable and empower my clients to make positive changes in their lives.

My counselling qualifications are very thorough - above degree level. I hold a specialist PostGraduate Diploma in Counselling Children & Young People. I'm a member of the BACP.

For 7 years I've been the West Mercia Specialist Therapist; providing specialist trauma therapy for child & adult victims of rape & sexual abuse, in crisis, across 4 counties; Shropshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire & Gwent. I see clients, often referred to me by West Mercia police at The Glade; forensic Sexual Assault Referral Centre, Worcester & Telford & I am highly experienced in pre-trial therapy.

I offer private counselling in Herefordshire & Malvern, Worcestershire, for adults of all ages, struggling with a variety of issues. I also offer specialist child counselling for children aged 4-11 and counselling for young people aged 11-21. 

I have experience in working with clients of all ages. Some of the issues I have experience in dealing with are; children & survivors of severe neglect, violence, rape, sexual abuse. PTSD & RRTSD. Family issues; separation and divorce, relationship issues, loss and grief, bullying, life stage transitions, sexuality, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, work related stress, bullying, abuse, low self-esteem and lack of confidence. I have over 20 years experience in working within the mental health sector, including a great deal of experience in working with people suffering with problems such as obsessive compulsive disorder, bi-polar, dementia, terminal illness, their families and care support workers.

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.

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.
