Counselling is not as scary as it might seem. You’ve taken the first step and now you’re looking for a counsellor that you jell with.
Do you wonder what life would be like if anxiety didn’t get in your way? Has your energy and motivation been zapped lately? Have you lost a dear one? Do you worry about never being able to feel differently? Perhaps the expectations of others are conflicting with your values and beliefs.
Counselling can help you to tweak your thought processes, to find compassion for yourself, to gain closure on painful past experiences, to make those life changes you’ve been thinking about.
I have been described as an oasis of calm. Working online and on the phone means that we can work together whilst you’re in your own safe space. There’s no need to factor in travel time to your appointment. Imagine what it would be like - to catch those thoughts and deal with them rationally; experience hearing your innermost thoughts and feelings out loud where there is no judgement or bias.
To have a chat about how we might work together or to book an appointment, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave me a message on 07483 236525.
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.
