MBACP - Couples, Adults & Adolescents Counsellor and Coach

About me

I believe passionately in Person Centred counselling. After 12 years of experience I am still in awe of the tenacity and depth of the human spirit and it's ability to heal itself, given the right conditions. The more experience I acquire the more I am convinced in how well it can work.  I offer my clients confidentiality,  a safe place to just be and to explore theirr feelings and thoughts without judgement. I believe that each person is the expert in who they are, how they feel, their past and their hopes for the future. In my work I follow the client wherever they lead me and we work together, as a team, to address whatever issues they bring to the room. I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is key to therapy.  Without it, therapy will not work.

I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for Myton Hospice for 6 years and am still a volunteer counsellor at The  Shakespeare Hospice. I have enjoyed the challenges this work brings, have learnt a huge amount and have been continually humbled by my work there. I have also worked as a volunteer at Safeline, a charity which supports survivors of sexual abuse, again gaining a lot of experience along the way.


I enjoy working with couples, adults of any age, gender, sexuality, class or religion, adolescents and children and have had a wide range of experience in, for example, depression, anxiety, grief, anger, bereavement, sexual and domestic abuse, self harm, family issues, relationship difficulties, low self esteem and lack of confidence, separation and divorce.

I charge £40 per one hour session with an individual and £70 per 1.5 hours session with a couple.

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

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.
