About me

I offer a safe, supportive and confidential space in Chapel Allerton where you can explore whatever problems and issues are troubling you. Talking through problems with someone outside your circle of friends or family can help you see things more clearly and understand more about yourself. The counselling rooms I work from are easily accessible, with parking nearby and good public transport links.
I have appointments available during the day and evenings.  I can offer an initial session where you can find out more about counselling and whether or not you want to work with me. There is a charge of £20 for this initial session. Please do contact me if you want any more information.

Training, qualifications & experience

DipHE in Therapeutic Counselling
Bereavement Counselling Course
Use of the Rewind Technique, for clients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and accredited trainer of the Rewind Technique
Hypnotherapy for Counsellors

I am qualified in the Relational Model. This model recognises the importance of relationships in our early development, in shaping our sense of self and in our adult experience. It also regards the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client as one of the most important factors in counselling work.

I have a particular interest and experience in bereavement and trauma. I am trained in the Rewind technique which can be particularly helpful for anyone who has experienced a traumatic event or is troubled by phobias. I am also an accredited trainer of The Rewind Technique and a member of IARTT (International Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy). I am experienced at working in a multi cultural environment and have spent some time volunteering for FAMSA in South Africa. I can support you with areas such as anxiety, relationship issues, family issues, low self esteem and depression. I also have experience of gender dysphoria and transsexualism.

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.

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.
