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 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.
