About me

Hi and welcome to my profile.

I am an Integrative Counsellor which means I am trained in psychodynamics, CBT and Humanistic (person centred) therapy.  I use a combined approach to help my clients deal with their issues as I believe that no single approach can treat each client in the situations they are experiencing as everyone is all unique and one approach may not be beneficial.

Are you tired of the negative chatter in your mind? Your negative self talk? Lack of motivation? Living in your past trauma? Feelings of regret, disappointment from a relationship breakdown? Have anxiety or suffering with depression?  All these and more can have an impact on your every day life and confiding in family and friends doesn't always feel right or helpful. When this happens it can be beneficial to talk about your problems to a neutral person who you know will not make any judgements. Exploring these problems in a confidential, warm space with me can help you to face challenges, make changes and move forward in a way that is best for you.

I am very passionate about helping you overcome your issues and care for your psychological and emotional well-being. With my support you will be able to understand yourself and your struggles with more clarity, recognise what is holding you back and make positive change happen. I also have experience of working with difference and diversity and sensitive to the cultural and ethnic origins of others and to their religious beliefs and sexual orientation.

I currently work for Women's Aid counselling clients who have experienced domestic abuse and also see male clients who are victims of domestic abuse through Mendas.  I have experience working with clients with various difficulties; domestic abuse, bereavement, depression, anxiety, guilt, PTSD and family issues.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

What to expect in your first session

All my sessions are for 50 minutes in a room with just the two of us.

I will ask you certain questions about yourself and your life which is part of my initial assessment. These questions could be:

Why have you come for counselling at this specific moment in your life to enable me to understand your problem/s.

I will ask about any current symptoms you may have i.e. if your problem is causing you difficulty to socialise or at work etc

Questions about your life will include your personal history and current situation.  I will also ask about your family history as I believe that family situations can play an important role in who we are.

I will also find out what your goals are for counselling.  Working in this way helps me better understand my clients problem.

I will ask you to sign a contract once explained verbally and you have read this in detail.  My contract explains confidentiality, time boundaries, date and time of sessions, cancellation procedure, if and when I may need to disclose information.

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.
