About me

It takes courage to embark on the therapeutic journey, yet it is one that can be personally and professionally transformational even if that might feel unlikely at the outset. It may help to understand, come to terms with, and get through the most challenging situations, overwhelming feelings, self-doubt, low self-esteem. The environment offers a non-judgemental, understanding, confidential and safe environment. This invites you to unpack and explore your emotions at your own pace, to unload and express whatever it is that you have been holding on to, or struggling with. Understandably, many clients are keen to know how long the process may take. I work with clients in 'short term' therapy, which can be 6-12 weeks and in that time look at ways of addressing issues such as anxiety, bereavement, relationship problems, life changes. Or there is 'long term' work anything from 3 months onwards where we explore repetitive patterns of behaviour, life choices, addiction, trauma, and experiences from childhood for example.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a professional and dedicated therapist with a good experience of working with adults and older adults (65+) with a broad range of issues and concerns such as abuse, addiction, anxiety, bereavement and depression. As well as my private practice, I have worked in the public sector for an NHS Trust providing medical staff with emotional support during the coronavirus pandemic.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.
