About me

I remember how daunting I found it when I first needed a counsellor. I was trying to hold down a full time job, bring up my family and going through relationship issues. Finding the time to even look for a counsellor seemed a difficult enough task.

That is why I value the counselling relationship and ensure that each of my clients feels supported and safe throughout their counselling experience with me. I know that each of you will have questioned your decision to see me many times before we have even met.

I am a registered member of the BACP and work in an integrative way. This means I can offer a wide range of services including working with clients experiencing many life events and emotions including depression, anxiety, low mood, anger, self esteem, bereavement. I also hold a Life Coach qualification which enables me to help clients to move forward and form achievable goals.

Mindfulness based CBT one to one 8 week course

This weekly course teaches you Mindfulness techniques that you can continue to use in daily life including how negative automatic thoughts can often determine how we react to situations and how our mood determines the actions we take. As it is not a group course I tailor it specifically to your needs

As the course is linked to CBT it costs £40 per week. If you pay in full you pay £280 meaning that the last session is free of charge.

I run monthly Mindfulness/Meditation groups and I offer individual sessions for anyone who wants to learn more about how to incorporate Mindfulness and Meditation into their every day life.
I am also a qualified hypnotherapist and I combine this with counselling if appropriate.

I currently run two courses.

6 week one to one course for manifesting the future that you desire.

This is aimed at individuals who may feel that there are too many outside demands on them. They have lost their way and want to learn new skills to help them to work towards a desired outcome.

7 week one to one course to improve confidence and self esteem.

This course is aimed at individuals who do not necessarily feel that they require counselling, but want to learn confidence building techniques and skills that they can carry forward in their every day life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over twelve years experience working within the Probation service. This has involved working with clients from wide ranging backgrounds and also their families. I have seen how an individual's behaviour affects not only them but also the people that are close to them. I have also worked with victims of crime and abuse.  

I have worked extensively in the areas of anxiety, mental health, domestic abuse and addictions. I have experience of working with people who are struggling within their relationships. I appreciate how anxiety disorders can make us feel isolated from our friends and families..

I have worked with people suffering from trauma and PTSD.

I combine counselling and hypnotherapy if appropriate as this can be very effective especially when people are struggling to verbalise trauma.


I have previously worked as a counsellor within an NHS GP surgery

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.
