About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.

My journey into counselling began over ten years ago, when I faced my own difficult life experiences. Through counselling I was able to explore my own unresolved issues that had held me back from finding a more complete and peaceful self.

Throughout my career I have worked in a supportive role. I trained as a nursery nurse and worked in primary school for some years before moving into family support. Once my own children had grown I set out to realise my ambition of becoming a counsellor.

I value the uniqueness of an individual’s life script, and how our experiences have helped shape the person that we become. I understand how daunting attending a first counselling session can be – the first step is always the hardest.....

Working as an integrative practitioner, it is my aim to provide a safe, confidential and sensitive setting to enable your counselling journey to begin. Working therapeutically, I will support and work alongside you in enabling you to have a deeper understanding of your issue and how you may make changes, achieve an aspiration or develop a greater sense of well-being in your life.

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.

Both offices are situated on ground floor level
