About me

Sometimes, we just haven’t given ourselves time and space to explore our feelings, challenges and hopes for the future. I am here to offer you that space and time, and to be with you as you move forward.

My belief is that we all have the ability to change our lives, and face and resolve personal challenges through Person Centred (talking) therapy, and the relationship formed between client and counsellor is a key part of this process.

I can offer Face-to-Face short term or long term counselling, telephone counselling and Skype Counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) Registered Counsellor.

I am qualified as an Integrative Person Centred Counsellor and would be happy to discuss any area of support you may feel you need.

I work within the BACP ethical framework, and adhere to the BACP’s complaints procedure.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified
