About me

Why am I so passionate about counselling?

Through out our lives, each of us faces challenges, and experiences which have a significant impact on our mental well being, and each of us has different ways in which we have managed to cope and work through these situations. Some of us find it easier to manage our thoughts and feelings, and may find it easier to deal with these and to move on than others.

In my life I too have struggled to find acceptance, and to contend with certain life events that have taken place, this has left me finding it hard to deal with my emotions and ability to move past these situations.

These experiences left me feeling the need to have someone to talk to in a non judgmental capacity, and to help me to see past this and to carry on living my life.

I am passionate about counselling and supporting others, as I feel I understand what it is like to struggle to cope with a situation and the feelings it brings up for me. Through gaining help myself, I understand how valuable it is to have someone there to truly listen to you and to be present with you when you feel like no one else understands you, or cares to listen to what you have to say.

I care about helping people. I wish to help you to find value in yourself, and to learn to manage whatever situation it is you are going through.

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.
