Hello, my name is Stacey and I have been a qualified counsellor for 15 years. I have extensive experience in working with people with Anxiety, Depression, Loss and Grief, Addiction, Relationship issues and many other difficulties.
I am currently offering online sessions via Zoom at £60.
I can help you to make sense of your experience, we can identify and shift negative patterns and ways of functioning that may have kept you feeling stuck, confused, or distressed. Together we can unlock the answers that often already lie deep within you. Through this process, you will become empowered to make more positive choices, life-enhancing changes, and feel more in control.

I attend courses and workshops on a regular basis and am committed to CPD (continued professional development) which keeps me current in my knowledge and dedicated approach to my work.
I am an experienced trainer and group facilitator and provide training to professionals in various roles on a regular basis. I have developed and facilitated workshops in prison for those with mental health difficulties and substance misuse issues.
I regularly run mental health training courses for professionals in substance misuse settings.
I have extensive experience of working throughout the Voluntary Sector providing 1-1 counselling, support and group work for people with substance misuse and mental health issues. I worked for four years as a counsellor for a bereavement service and have volunteered for various other London based charities.
My life experience originally drew me to this profession as I experienced my own transformation through some very dark periods which lead me to a greater understanding and insight of myself, how to function effectively and find meaning and contentment in a frequently confusing world.
I am passionate in my belief that this path is accessible to everyone, regardless of background or circumstance.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

More about therapy
An important part of therapy is working collaboratively to find understanding and meaning of the thoughts, feelings, and patterns that may stem from the past. This work may involve listening, exploring, reflecting, and challenging with a willingness to work together to unravel these difficulties. This can allow freedom and expression to the more resilient parts of you that may have been buried under previous hurt or trauma.
I am accredited by and adhere to the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) ethical framework of good practice.
What is my working model?
My approach is relational and integrative. This means that I tailor my approach according to individual needs and preferences, drawing on established and effective therapeutic models. I use grounding techniques that help to build self-esteem and provide a safe foundation to work on any deeper issues that may emerge. I passionately believe that with the right support we can all achieve better emotional and mental well being regardless of our challenges and 'labels'.
How will this help?
This will help you to identify and understand defense mechanisms that may have developed to protect you from harm and therefore need to be respected and valued before they can be gently lowered. If your self-esteem is low we can build on your strengths and learn to manage your vulnerabilities. If relationships are difficult to manage we can work together to understand why this happens and how to move towards a healthier way of relating to yourself and others.
