Dip. Couns, MNCS (accred.) Integrative Counsellor

About me

Hello my name is Shauna,

Firstly thank you for clicking on my profile, I am a fully qualified and insured integrative Accredited Counsellor and Registered with the National Counselling Society.

Before I became a counsellor I worked within social care settings for mental health, disabilities and learning disabilities. I also went to University and studied Midwifery, I think these careers have helped me to identify that communication skills and people skills are very important when building trust, and trust is very important within counselling.

I can change my approach to adapt to the individual clients needs, I use Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Transactional analysis theory, Attachment theory and others that i feel the client needs, respecting each person to be unique. I provide and offer a calm, confidential, safe and non judgemental space where you will feel you are heard.

I believe everyone deserves the time and space to be listened too, i appreciate how difficult it can be to look into therapy and to start it, i would like you to know i am here to support, not to judge, and i’m here to listen, and help you to achieve the best version of yourself.

I work with men, women and young adults over 16years old. Session are for 50 minute weekly for as long as you feel you need. I work on a short and long term basis.

If you would like to call or email me then we can set up an initial call, so we can talk about what you would like to take from counselling, if your then happy to continue i will book you in to start weekly sessions. 

I do offer discounted rates for low income, unemployed, Key workers, OAP’S and Students over 16 years of age. 

Thank you for taking the time to read, and I look forward to hearing from you, and if i’m not the counsellor that fits for you then I really do hope your journey in counselling goes well.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

NCS

National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
