About me

I specialise in helping people with anxiety, bereavement and trauma/abuse. I used to be an NHS Paramedic, and have had a wide variety of life experiences which help me as a counsellor.

I am also a BWRT registered practitioner. BWRT is an amazing type of therapy which can often have rapid results - in many cases after only one or two sessions. Please look at my website for more information: www.soundcounselling.co.uk

Everything we talk about is confidential, and non-judgemental.

I offer a free initial consultation.

I have a degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, and am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).  I observe to the BACP Ethical Framework. I have also completed the Bereavement Counselling Service training (complex grief) and continue to volunteer for them.

As well as face to face sessions, I also offer video counselling using Zoom. Importantly, I am fully trained and experienced in providing online therapy, which includes telephone counselling.

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
