I believe that throughout our lives most of us experience difficulties, upsets or find ourselves wanting to understand ourselves better. Counselling offers an opportunity to find a safe, confidential space with a trained person to offer support and understanding to make sense of our difficult issues.
Undertaking therapy takes courage and commitment and a desire for things to be different. We come to therapy as we are unhappy with aspects of our lives and know that we want things to be better. My personal life experience led me to therapy and then to training to become a therapist.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Integrated Counsellor which enables me to work in a range of different ways to suit your personal needs. Both personally and professionally I understand how difficult it is to make the first move to access counselling. I have experience that working together enables the client to find the best way forward for themselves as individuals enabling them to find their own solutions or work towards their desired outcomes.
I have a long history of working in health settings, working with various groups of people with diverse and complex needs.
Anxiety, Depression, Post-natal depression, Stress, Bereavement, Health anxieties, Family issues, Identity Relational issues, Domestic Violence, Estrangement and Loss are areas I work in.
I offer a free 30-minute phone consultation to explore whether we can work together and if we both agree I then offer long or short-term weekly sessions, via zoom or the phone and face to face.
At this no obligation consultation I will explain the next steps.
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.
