Hello, and thank you for taking a look at my profile. I help people experiencing anxiety, panic attacks, depression, trauma, low self-esteem, relationship issues and loss to seek out and achieve their goals.
I commit to being honest, non-judgmental and fully accepting whilst being fully engaged in our working relationship, so allowing you to lead and set the pace.
I work in the present, the 'here and now', allowing for space (if you wish) to explore your past experiences in order to inform your choices going forward.
I am a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychology). I adhere to their Ethical Framework for good practice and also their Guidelines for Online Counselling and Psychotherapy.
If you'd like to have a chat about how we might work together, do get in touch.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold the Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and have undertaken many aspects of CPD, specifically including:
- Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling
- Walk and Talk Therapy
I have experience in counselling in the private, public and charity sectors which has enabled me to offer short, medium and long term work.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£45.00 per session
I offer a free 15 minute phone call to enable us to see if we are a match.
My fees are £45 for a 60 minute session. I offer weekly and fortnightly sessions, depending on need.
I currently have availability on Mondays and other weekday evenings on request.
An integrative approach to counselling and psychotherapy involves drawing upon more than one modality of counselling. I blend relevant theory and interventions to suit your needs. The modalities that I draw on most often are Person-Centred Therapy (P.C.T.) Gestalt and Transactional Analysis (T.A.).
- P.C.T. believes that each and every person can, and will, become a more fully functioning person if given the correct conditions.
- Gestalt counselling focuses upon the individual's experience in the present moment - the therapist/client relationship, the environmental and social contexts of a person's life, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of their overall situation.
- T.A. enables us to focus on relationships, both those with other people and those within us.
