About me

Hello, my name is Tammy, I am trained in Integrative counselling and psychotherapy and I am a fully qualified integrative therapist. The foundation of my work approach is person centred. Practising as an integrative counsellor allows me to integrate many different approaches and styles to suit my clients needs.

I strongly believe one shoe size does not fit all and likewise an approach working with one individual does not mean it will work for the next, Thus I strongly feel being able to offer variety to each individual is key to a fulfilled counselling service, offering the client a way of working that suits their individual needs and ensuring they are met. 

I am offering one to one sessions with adults 18 years and over via telephone and or online. All sessions are set in a safe and confidential space during our telephone and online sessions.

I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation whereby we can assess whether we will be suitable to work with each other on our counselling journey.

I believe trust is key in baselining the therapeutic relationship and once trust is achieved then therapeutic work can be the start to the journey in coming to terms with or resolving any issues or difficulties that you are facing.

I am inviting and welcoming anyone who is seeking counselling regardless of the issue/ difficulties that you may be experiencing to get in touch and have the initial consultation, as I believe until you get to know the person who you may be working with, then you won’t know if this could be a start of a good journey ahead and moving on to a place where you want to be.

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

Through my personal and work experiences of working in health care, mental health and with both adults and children all with a vast range of different needs, I have learnt that with someone listening, and walking through your difficulties with you, offering empathy and getting to know and feel some of what you have experienced is powerful and hence the benefits that counselling can offer. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and empathic space for all my clients and I work at a pace that suits my clients needs.

Some clients may seek counselling for some quick, short term help to enable them to deal with strong intense emotions or feelings and a sense of becoming overwhelmed, some may come with more specific issues and some clients may seek counselling for help in dealing with the more deeper long term issues. Sometimes you may not know what has brought you to seek counselling and that too is what we can work together to understand.

I offer predominantly short term counselling, but I do offer long term counselling where my clients may need it.
