I am a fully qualified Integrative counsellor. My core model is Person-Centred Therapy and client led however, I also have knowledge of other types of therapy that can be drawn on to suit client’s individual needs. Each client is unique and having knowledge of different therapies and methods helps to achieve a positive counselling outcome.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship between the client and counsellor is key. Once in place, clients are able to explore issues with me that may be holding them back. I am warm and friendly, offering a confidential, non-judgemental safe space for clients to examine areas of concern in their lives.
As a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I adhere to strict ethical guidelines and have personal supervision once a month. This ensures that my clients are getting the best possible treatment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BSc. (Hons) degree in Psychology from the University of Liverpool along with a Diploma in Counselling.
I have a history of volunteering for Age UK in the emotional health and wellbeing service working with clients from age 17 upwards. My background is in the private sector. I am happy to offer face to face, video or telephone counselling, what-ever the client feels happier with.
I work with clients who have issues such as: Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Low self-esteem, and people who have experienced Loss and Bereavement.
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.
