About me

My name is Wendy, I am a UK based counsellor. I offer online and telephone counselling. I am an integrative counsellor, I work primarily in a humanistic way but I draw on other methodologies and theories to tailor the therapy to best support you. I am a member of the BACP and follow their ethical guidelines. I keep up to date with training and value supervision highly.

I believe that the relationship is central to the counselling process and I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental space to walk along side you, for the part of the journey you choose to share with me.

I strive to be honest and empathic. I provide an open space where you can explore what brought you to counselling; achieve clarity, acceptance and make changes for the better in your life. 

“If we climb high enough we reach a height from which tragedy ceases to look tragic” Irvin Yalom 

I warmly invite you to email me to arrange a free initial session to see if we are a good fit and to begin your counselling journey.

Training, qualifications & experience

Before fully embarking upon my counselling journey, I have worked as a manager and as an early years teacher alongside studying psychology for most of my adult life. I also took time out to have a family. I have a BSc (hons) degree in Psychology, a Foundation degree in counselling as well as Level 4 diploma in counselling. I specialise in working with trauma, sexual abuse and domestic violence and have worked with many clients with these experiences. I also have a special interest in relationships as well as mental health conditions. I have worked with addiction, eating disorders, depression, anger, anxiety, PTSD, sexual issues, kink, fertility, health pregnancy related issues, self-harm, sexual abuse, domestic violence, social anxiety, feelings of sadness, abandonment and attachment issues, suicidal feelings and more.

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.
