About me

Hello and welcome to my page.

I'm Tammy, a warm and compassionate counsellor based in Liverpool. I work with adults who may be experiencing a range of issues. Some of these could be related to abandonment, loneliness and insecurity, abuse, anxiety and or worry, depression, low mood and feeling sad, inner child wounds and childhood issues, low self-esteem and building self-confidence, relationships problems and or family issues, stress, anger, burnout and overwhelm.

I have been in that place - needing help yet unsure what that looks like or where to find it. I was scared to do it on my own and made a choice to start counselling and learnt that feeling those uncomfortable emotions in a safe environment was something I needed to do in order to feel better. 

There is still a stigma attached to counselling and I really want to change that. Our physical health is considered more of a priority and feels easier to visit a dentist or doctor. Whereas, I am very passionate about counselling as it can really support your mental health and wellbeing. It can also help you to understand of yourself, feel lighter, calmer and more in control.

My counselling approach

I tailor therapy to suit the needs of you, because a “one size" does not fit all. By using an infusion of person centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), inner child work and hypnotherapy, allows me the opportunity and flexibility to promote healing from a mental, physical and emotional perspective.

Sessions may involve talking through specific issues or you might want to have more general discussions about how you're feeling. I may offer information and suggestions, but I will not tell you what you should think or do.

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.

Further information

  • I am dyslexic and can empathise with others who are
  • I also suffer from post covid syndrome  

I have chose to share this information in case anyone is looking for support with either of these conditions. 

The Therapeutic Relationship

Being able to talk to me openly and honesty about your thoughts, feelings and struggles is all part of building our therapeutic relationship. The relationship between client and counsellor is very unique, rewarding and an important one.

In-Person Benefits

While I offer virtual counselling, immense value comes from in-person sessions. Traveling to and from a dedicated space allows you time and space to reflect. Releasing emotions in a calming environment can leave you feeling refreshed and lighter. My intention is to provide a warm, comfortable space for your self-care.

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.
