About me

I am a warm, empathic counsellor, skilled and experienced in helping my clients understand and work through difficult, sometimes painful, feelings. The qualities of caring and respect underpin the way I work.

In the face of mental distress our response may be to seek safety in ways that are familiar to us. We might experience ourselves withdrawing from life, fighting it or submitting to some one or thing more powerful than us. Those familiar ways might work for a while, but sometimes they no longer serve us well and lead to deeper distress. Whatever you are facing, I work with the person present with me to create a healing relationship that can help you live the best life you can.

I offer counselling to individual adults. Counselling is a confidential process that helps you explore and address what matters most to you. I have experience counselling people privately and working for a national charity delivering counselling for the NHS. I draw upon my experience and my training as an integrative counsellor to stay with you and work through what you need to at this time in your life.

I recognise seeking counselling can be difficult. There may be a question of trust for you. Perhaps concern about the counselling process, or maybe you feel bad about needing help at all. I can help you explore your concerns and needs in an introductory counselling session, following which you can decide whether you would like to continue the therapeutic work of counselling with me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’ve successfully completed a BACP accredited training and have been awarded an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling.

I have experience counselling people from a wide variety of backgrounds, ages and cultures - all with their own individual therapeutic needs.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Fees

●    £60 per session.

●    I offer a limited number of lower cost sessions.  Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Further information

I offer counselling to individuals aged 18 and over.  Each sessions lasts approximately 50 minutes from the scheduled start time and normally take place once a week at the same time.  I do understand starting counselling is quite a commitment and you might not feel sure about entering into a contract to work with me after a single introductory session.  If that is the case I am able to offer up to 4 sessions outside of a contract to help you decide.
