About us

CURRENTLY OFFERING TELEPHONE COUNSELLING DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS

Are you looking for a safe space to talk?

I offer you confidential weekly sessions in which you can explore feelings and difficulties in a warm, non-judgemental and private space.

Do you want to discover and be your authentic self?

Working together, we can uncover what's troubling you; growing and increasing your understanding of yourself. If you're ready for changes, to start living the life you want, or if there are past issues you wish to unpack, counselling can provide the safe space you need.

What will counselling be like?

During our sessions, we will look together at your thoughts and feelings, and identify any that may be holding you back. We will explore the real you. You'll be able to bring any issues that are troubling you, to express your feelings and share them with a supportive listener. This can be life-changing, as you will uncover patterns of behaviour, and with this awareness you will gain empowerment to make choices in your life. The sessions last for fifty minutes and you will attend weekly, perhaps at times with a task to 'try out' between sessions.

Everyone deserves to be heard.

You are unique, and as a BACP registered counsellor, I'm qualified in integrative counselling. This means I'll use a range of counselling approaches to suit you and your needs. My main approaches are person centred acceptance of you, cognitive behavioural therapy to help us recognise thoughts that may be troubling you, and psychodynamic therapy to look at underlying issues or relationship patterns. I draw techniques from many areas. Our sessions will be as unique as you are.

Am I the right counsellor for you?

I work with adults and adolescents. This may include if you are experiencing depression, grief and loss, low self-worth, health problems, relationship issues, trauma, bereavement, work issues or stress. I can assist you with uncovering who you are, help you to untangle overwhelming feelings, and work with you to develop the tools to make a life that's worth living.

I'm committed to inclusivity, equality and celebrating diversity.

What can you expect from counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy, which may be short-term or open-ended, depending on your needs. Part of its power comes from the therapeutic relationship that develops between us when you are heard and understood. The other crucial part is the courage it takes for you to show up and begin this process. It's a blessing to work with clients on this journey.

Would you like to take your first step towards change?

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.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

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.
