About me

I am professionally trained, holistic counsellor. This means I use an approach that encompasses the whole person, their lives, experiences and influences.

I offer a caring, safe environment where a therapeutic relationship can develop. With trust and confidentiality of utmost importance, I aim to establish a base on which to build the opportunity for understanding and change. Sometimes just having a safe environment to talk, be listened to and explore can be enough to bring about change.

I work with adults and young people (11 yrs upwards), carers and those with disabilities, covering a wide range of issues including - anxiety, depression, self harm, low self esteem, attachment, twin relationships, ptsd.  I specialise in all the issues around loss, for example - loss of marriage, children, friendship, a much loved pet, job or work, twin or sibling separation and relocation.

I have many years experience working within care environments offering physical, practical and emotional support. This gives me valuable insight into an individuals needs and how I might help them.

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.

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.
