About me

It’s not easy to acknowledge that we need help, making the first contact with a counsellor is a huge step. It can be scary and you may be full with anxiety right now but if you are already reading this then you know it is a step you need to make.

I offer a confidential, safe and non-judgemental environment that allows you to explore what has brought you to counselling.

When we first meet we will be able to discuss what has brought you here and what are the challenges you wish to overcome in counselling. As a team we will come up with a plan that will support your choices and moving forward.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have BA Degree in Integrated Counselling and Psychotherapy which allows me to work as a counsellor and a psychotherapist. I am also undergoing my MSc in Psychological Science as it is important to continue studying to offer further support to my clients.

I am a Registered Individual Member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and hold a Certificate of Proficiency (CoP) with them.

I have a wide range of experience working with different issues such as anxiety, depression, self worth, relationship issues, bereavement, sexual abuse, loss, trauma, addiction and more. Whatever difficulty you are facing in your life, I feel confident that I can offer you a safe and supportive relationship, within which we can help you work toward a more positive future.

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

1 step to access the building but counselling rooms available on ground floor.

Availability

Due to current climate and government restrictions - I am available for online video call sessions (Zoom) and/or telephone counselling.
