About me

About me and my therapy practice

I became a counsellor because I care about people, and want to make a positive difference to their lives. I want to enable you to discover a better way of living and coping, no matter what life throws at you.

I am a warm and compassionate therapist whose focus is on my clients, listening to their problems and concerns without judgement in a supportive environment.

Your first session

Many people feel some anxiety when seeking counselling help and so it may be a challenge for you to make that first phone call or to send the first email. Please be reassured that putting you at ease is a priority and I will be happy to explain how I work and to answer any questions that you have.

I offer an integrated approach to counselling. This means I have many different styles of counselling available to me for working alongside you. During sessions with me you will be able to explore your thoughts and feelings free from concerns of rejection or judgement.

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.
