About me

Hello my name is Sindy,

I am a person centred counsellor and I am here to offer you a safe and confidential place in the here and now, to help you explore your thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental manner.

I know the first step of starting counselling can be quite daunting but I am here to answer any questions you may have. Our first session will be to assess how best we can work together for your individual needs, for you to see how I work and to discuss what it is you would like to get out of counselling.
If you are happy to start we can discuss the best time for your next session.

Counselling does not offer advice but helps you to find the best way forward for yourself, help you find your own solutions by me listening and being empathetic.

I also work as a counsellor/Life coach in a secondary school. The students in the schools ages range from 11-16 years old.

I am a registered member of BACP and abide by their ethical framework.

I am also fully insured.

Member organisations


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.

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.
