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.
Training, qualifications & experience
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.
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.

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
