About me

Hi - I'm Theresa and I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. I work with adults and adolescents from the age of 12, and I offer a warm and friendly service. I work with a broad range of client issues and find that by having a safe space, my clients are able to explore what is going on in their life and together we can find a way forward. I understand that life can be difficult whatever age you are, and it can sometimes feel like you are lost or confused by events or feelings. If you are struggling with something and would like to get some help with it, come and talk to me and see if counselling works for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

My expertise is as an Integrative Counselling Therapist which means I am trained in all of the main modalities including psychodynamic, person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapy. My work will be tailored to the unique needs of each client and can be either short term or long term, depending on what is most suitable, and how the client wants to work.

I am qualified to Masters degree level and am also a qualified clinical supervisor. I have worked both privately and in agencies, education settings and in the public sector.

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

Taking the first step to start counselling is the hardest, and it is important that you find the right counsellor to reach out to. I offer a warm and empathic counselling experience and understand it is not easy. I try and ensure clients feel comfortable and confident in sharing their story, thoughts and feelings with me in a safe and confidential space.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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

In person

I am a CPCAB qualified supervisor and have vacancies for supervisees. I work from the cyclical model and offer 1:1 or group supervision.
