About me

I am a fully qualified therapeutic integral counsellor working with adults and young people. My passion is helping people through their most difficult times when they cannot see a way forward. I have 22 years of experience working in primary schools, helping children with special educational needs to help them reach their true potential. I have three years of experience working in Mary Stevens Hospice, supporting patients and their families through illness and loss. I have also worked in the Whitehouse Cancer Support Centre, counselling people with cancer, terminal illness, and bereavement for the past year. I am fully safeguarding trained, and I have an up-to-date DBS certificate.

I have many years of experience working for a charity helping underprivileged families with practical help and support.

Seeking help is a courageous thing to do, and it is the start of the road to recovery. I want to help and support you with any worries or struggles and help you to manage your anxiety to find a way forward. Sometimes it can feel like a very lonely place when dealing with these emotions, but you do not have to do this alone.

Call me and make that first step to finding a better way to manage whatever you need help with while feeling safe and listened to.

Integral counselling is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies that help people with many various problems such as trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, bereavement, abuse, self-harm, illness, and many other problems that people are faced with.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

DBS check

Wheelchair user access

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.
