About me

I am a qualified Relationship Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, I am a Registered member of the BACP.

I offer a professional, confidential service, ensuring I provide a safe and calm environment for my clients. I was trained by Relate in Relationship Counselling.

I offer Relationship Counselling along with Individual Counselling.

I also offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for depression, anxiety, anger management, phobias, and insomnia.

I am currently undertaking training in Addiction Therapy and Psychosexual Therapy.

My philosophy is to provide a safe, calm and nurturing space for my clients to reach their preferred goals, potential and happiness.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Relationship Counselling (Levels 4 & 5)

Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Diploma in EMDR Therapy

I have been practicing Relationship Counselling for over 4 years and CBT for 2 years.

I have extensive experience working with relational issues, sexual problems, depression, anxiety, anger, loss, phobias and insomnia. I also have experience working with addiction and also, the impact that has on family & friends.

Working within Relate has given me the confidence and knowledge needed to work with multiple problems in the therapy room, clients with diverse needs and working within a multicultural society. My experience ensures my clients are treated with respect, as individuals and autonomy.

As a Counsellor my strengths are my ability to listen, be empathetic, trustworthy, objective, non-judgemental, calm whilst holding my clients hopes together with managing their expectations.

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.

Further information

For me as a therapist it is important that I adapt my working styles specifically to my clients needs. Whether that be working systemically, psychodynamically or using person-centered therapy.

It is important that my clients feel safe, understood and valued. This enables us to establish a trusting, collaborative therapeutic relationship which will help us work towards achieving their dual or individual goals.

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.
