About me

Hi I am a fully qualified, experienced integrative counsellor, having worked within the NHS, the private sector and in private practice for a number of years. I use a variety of counselling approaches to suit each of my clients' needs, including CBT(Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Most importantly, I place a great deal of emphasis on offering all my clients warmth and understanding and on developing a trusting, confidential relationship.

We can all find ourselves facing difficult situations at various times in our lives and sometimes having someone to listen is all we need. I offer a safe environment for my clients to discover and explore options, choices and ways of coping. My job is to come alongside my clients as they face life's challenges and find resolutions or simply peace.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have obtained a level 4 Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling.

I have also obtained a Certificate and a level 5 Diploma in CBT.

I have an approved Certificate in Anger Management.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have worked at St Giles Hospice in Lichfield, where my experience focused on bereavement and loss as well as end of life issues for relatives and patients.

My experience also includes:

Depression, anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, OCD, low self-esteem and assertiveness issues, Anger Management, stress in the workplace, acute stress, diagnosis of illness, issues of spirituality, managing change and wellbeing.

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.
