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, low self-esteem and assertiveness issues, Anger Management, stress in the workplace, diagnosis of illness, issues of spirituality, life coaching, managing change and wellbeing.

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.

Supervision

I offer integrative clinical supervision for counsellors, holding a National Counselling Society Certificate in Supervision and providing a safe space to explore working and growing as practitioners.  I would aim to be able to encourage supervisees in expressing their needs and increasing their self-awareness as a therapist, particularly in areas such as how; style, personality, authenticity, and modality can impact on the therapy they offer.  I believe it is important to be able to bring all of you to supervision, as all of you can affect your work with clients.
