About me

Note - as of 13/03/2020 I will not be accepting new clients. To be added to the waiting list, please email thistlecounsellor@gmail.com.

Hi, I'm Tiffany and thanks for visiting my page.

Whatever brings you to counselling, whether it's a bereavement, if you're experiencing anxiety or depression, if your self-esteem or self-confidence is low or if you're experiencing relationship issues at work or at home, I will offer you a safe, friendly, non-judgmental and supportive space so you've got the time, space and freedom to explore, understand and overcome whatever you need to.

I am a qualified Person-Centred counsellor and I want to be able to help support your journey through the counselling process by fostering a trusting and supportive relationship. Whatever the purpose for you seeking out counselling, I put you at the heart of any session and provide counselling which is individual to your needs and goals.

I am passionate about mental health and know it can help people untangle what's going on for them whilst they're going through a difficult time and I fully believe counselling is one of the best ways in which people can understand themselves and the world around them better. I really do think counselling is a form of self-care. How often do we find time for our thoughts, our feelings and our experiences? Counselling is the deal opportunity to do that.

Nobody's experiences in life are the same as anyone else's so I greet you and work with and for you as an individual, and by using our initial session (half price), I can get to know you and your needs so you get the most value from seeing me and importantly, you can meet and get to know me so you know you're working with the right person.

I work from a therapy room based in Saltney, just outside of Chester with free parking on site and easy access by public transport. My sessions are one to one and can be done on a short or long term basis, that is entirely up to you. If you'd like more information, or if you'd like to book an appointment, then please do get in touch.

Training, qualifications & experience

Certificate of Counselling Skills

Diploma of Higher Education in Person-Centred and Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy

18+ months experience from my placement of working with drug and alcohol addiction and other issues for clients with mild to medium mental health needs at a well known charity in North Wales.

I am committed to continual learning and complete regular CPD (Continuing Professional Development) to refine my skills as a counsellor and provide all my clients with the best possible experience.

Prior to training as a counsellor, I worked in a variety of sales and service roles from a call centre to a baker! This has given me a huge wealth of experience in communication with people from a range of backgrounds and has given me the confidence and effective capability to interact with people.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
