About me

Seeking Counselling aims to support your ability to overcome what holds you back from living a life where you feel stronger to cope with those matters that concern you.

Working with, for example: Bereavement/Oncology/Mild to moderate anxiety and depression/Work related issues/ Relationships. Critical Incident stress debriefing one to one or group in Organisations.

My main approach integrates Person Centred and CBT. However I have knowledge and experience of other modalities. Sessions are via Telephone/Skype/Zoom and when restrictions have disappeared I welcome the option to work with you face to face

I create an atmosphere where you will feel comfortable and safe, I’m easy to talk to. Our work is confidential. You choose what you share with me.

At times therapy may feel challenging however if you are open and willing to give it a try then therapy can also be incredibly freeing.

I look forward to working with you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
