There are so many reasons why most of us, at some point in our life feel low, lost and in need of support, understanding and guidance. Depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and grief are but a few of the issues which can affect our everyday lives in such a way that can leave you feeling helpless, hopeless and stuck.
Sometimes all you need is a safe space and time to talk and be heard with compassion and without judgement. To feel validated and understood can give you the hope and belief that you can move forwards towards a happier, more fulfilled and peaceful future.
I provide a safe, non-judgmental space in calm, comfortable surroundings to allow the process of effective therapy to unfold. My aim is to help my clients work through and overcome issues, worries and limiting behaviour and to support them throughout their process of healing and moving forwards.
If you feel you might benefit from my service but do not live in or around the area, I also offer counselling via Skype.
Training, qualifications & experience
Level 4 Diploma in Integrative Counselling (accredited by the BACP)
Diploma in Life Coaching (Distinction)
I also have a wealth of experience as a Well-being Coach, helping you recognise your limiting beliefs in relation to weight and health, career, relationships and confidence and replacing them with positive affirmations so that you will realise your full potential and achieve your life goals.
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
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.
