About me

I am an experienced BACP accredited,counsellor. I currently work to support university students with mental health difficulties and have worked for 10 years for a local charity offering affordable counselling.

I believe that counselling can help us free and loosen issues when we feel stuck in difficulties.  I aim to provide a place where you feel able to talk things through in your own way. In the first session we explore what you want from counselling and then progress to identify what is going on. Counselling works to help you think through your issues, express your feelings and develop ways to cope and support yourself  so as to move forward. 

I have worked with a variety of clients from the age of 17 year plus and have experience of working with a number of issues such as bereavement, loss, anxiety, panic and depression.

I use a variety of counselling approaches. I believe that its important to provide you with someone with whom you feel you can work, who listens and enables you to develop your own awareness so as to move forward. I aim to provide warmth and acceptance so that you feel safe and can work with your issues.

My approach integrates person centred, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic theories.  I have experience in counselling for a wide variety of issues such as depression, panic,anxiety, relationship problems, bereavement, loss and grief, health concerns, abuse, trauma, PTSD,and child related issues. I use different skills and techniques in discussion with you and as required.

I have completed training in counselling for self esteem, anxiety, loss and change, self harm, domestic violence, anger management and self harm as well as the use of CBT based counselling approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ACT, mindfulness and compassion focussed therapy CFT. I have a particular interest in trauma and have completed part 1 EMDR training. I also have a particular interest in work with students in further education who have mental health difficulties.

I have worked as a trainer and contributed to the training of counselling students.  I currently work providing mental health support to  university students

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.

Accessibility

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.
