About me

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 I am offering online and telephone counselling only at this time.

I am a fully qualified person-centred counsellor and a registered member of the BACP who offers a professional, safe, confidential, non-judgemental and friendly counselling service.

As a person centred counsellor it is my belief that individuals are at the centre of their experiences and it is only them who truly knows how this was experienced. I can help the individual to understand their experiences and their feelings towards their experiences essentially helping them to reconnect with their inner values and self worth.

As well as my private counselling practice I also currently work for a charitable organisation counselling adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and have previously worked with ChildLine counselling children and young people. My previous roles have also given me experience of working in a wide variety of settings with people with a broad range of issues which have included me working with older people, people with severe mental health disorders, people with disabilities and people with hoarding disorder.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a highly qualified counsellor with a Masters (MA) in Clinical Counselling. My undergraduate degree (BSc) is in Psychology gained at Bangor University of Wales where I also gained my Masters (MSc) in Psychological Research.

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.

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.
