About me

Does this sound familiar? I don't know what to think? What is going on? Who can I share this with? How can I deal with this? When will it end? How can I change this? Who will support me? If you can relate to any of these you have come to the right place.

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and life coach working with adults, and teenagers. My major interest is helping others to build up fulfilling relationships, develop effective communication skills and connect to who they are. I work towards synergy between the mind and the body. I’m also qualified and trained to use the Rewind Technique, this technique is predominantly used for those suffering from PTSD, Phobias and/or trauma-related issues.

I offer one to one counselling and career development. It is my privilege to provide a confidential, encouraging and supportive environment where you can explore your thoughts to gain personal understanding, insight and direction. My practice is based in Sutton Coldfield.

At times life is really challenging and clarity is difficult to find, but it is possible in a private, accepting and supportive environment where thoughts can be explored fully without interruptions. I take a flexible approach, determined by your pace and comfort, or use one of my programs that works on various areas of personal development.

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.

FIRST STEPS AND FEES
After an initial contact by e-mail or phone we will arrange an appointment as convenient.

The first session is an opportunity for us to meet and get to know each other. It will be a space for you to ask any questions you may have about me or the counselling process and to talk about what brings you to counselling. At the end of this session we should have a good idea as to whether we want to work together and continue with further sessions. Alternatively, you may want to go away and think about it for a few days.

Once the decision is made to continue we will establish a ‘contract’ that we both feel comfortable with. This will make clear the confidential nature of the sessions, the cancellation policy and establish our commitment to working together in regular weekly sessions. For example we may initially contract to meet for 8 weeks, to see how that works out. This may be a sufficient number of sessions or you may then decide to continue open-endedly. A review of our work together is taken part way through the therapy.

Fees: Each session is 60 minutes, £60.00

Key details

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.
