I offer an integrated approach to counselling therapy and work with 3 types of therapy to give my clients the benefit of a wide range of 'tools'. This means I can use a variety of approaches to help and support my clients. I use Person Centred therapy as my base, which means my clients are in charge of the sessions and their goals. My aim is to build a trusting working partnership with my clients, and to walk in their shoes when we are working on their issues. As each client is different, I cannot say how long a therapeutic programme will last for. It is dependent on how long the client feels they need counselling therapy.
I work with anxiety, depression, work related stress, abuse, relationship counselling, grief and loss, non complex trauma and womens issues.
I offer a free 15 minute telephone session where we can talk and see if we can work together. Moving forward, I then ask that each session is paid for at the start of the session. Each session is an 50 minutes long
I am a member of the BACP, which is an ethical practice organisation.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling ; certificate in Relationship counselling; Certificate in Working with Trauma. I have worked with a wide range of clients from a variety of backgrounds to help them work with their emotional issues. I have no restriction on ethnicity, faith or background. Each client is approached on a personal level, and we work together to identify the best therapeutic way in which to help them.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I charge £40 for a 50 minute face to face session, and ask that these sessions are paid for in advance. Online and telephone sessions are charged at £10 per 15 minutes, and i ask that these are aid within 24 hours of the session taking place. I will accept bank transfer, cash or card payment.
