About me

I have worked on and focus on the area of bereavement. This covers a great many aspects of loss.

I very much believe in building a trusting relationship and in working with people towards understanding your issues.

I have extensive experience in the following areas:

  • Bereavement
  • Loss
  • Sudden Loss
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship Issues
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Low Self-Confidence

Everyone is different and there is no single solution that fits all. Working with you to help your talk through the issues you are facing will lead to growth through knowledge of yourself and your emotions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience that includes a full range of issues presented by clients of all ages, finding successful outcomes in situations such as:

  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Loss (including Sudden and Isolated)
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Low Self-Confidence
  • Worthiness
  • Anxiety
  • Anger issues
  • Relationship breakdowns

I am also a Supervisor working with supervisees, both one to one and in groups, to go through client work.

  • KRCS Advanced Diploma in Supervision Counselling (NCS Accredited)
  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Cruse Supervision for Adults and CYP
  • Cruse Bereavement Adult Bereavement Care

Member organisations

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.

NCS

National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
