About me

I am a BACP Registered counsellor offering one-to-one counselling in person at our Brighouse office, by telephone or online.  I have experience in working with work-related stress, feeling sad or overwhelmed, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, bereavement, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, loneliness, those adapting to life with a chronic illness.

On the basis that a good therapeutic relationship is key for allowing change and growth to occur, I work with my clients to explore experiences, thoughts and feelings in a supportive environment.

I draw from person-centred, humanistic and cognitive behavioural approaches to adapt what’s needed in each situation. My training in mindfulness, breathing and relaxation techniques have proven useful in management of anxiety symptoms and for general wellbeing and self-care.

Our view of the world is shaped by our experiences and in seeking to understand and find meaning from them, we can gain the perspective needed to make choices in how to direct our life.

Our sessions begin with telling the story of what brings you to counselling, and we will then work together to identify areas to focus on and the kind of support needed for each situation. For some people this can be about taking time to reflect on their experiences and the impact it has on them, and for others more structured techniques are provided to help manage and understand specific experiences.

Feedback I have received from clients is that counselling allowed them the space to stand back and look at life for a moment rather than always being in the thick of it.  By talking through things, it has helped them to see what they need to do next.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience of working in the charity sector and an occupational health setting offering both long- and short-term therapy.

My qualifications include a post-graduate diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy, a degree in Biological Sciences specialising in Physiology and Health, and I am also a qualified Hatha Yoga Teacher.  I am also currently studying for a diploma in CBT.

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.
