About me

Taking the first step can be a scary prospect, I know I've been there! The number of therapists available can be overwhelming. Who will be able to help you best? What do the qualifications mean?  Although there are so many approaches, most counsellors will usually agree that the relationship is the most important part of counselling.

I am a warm, honest and genuine, professionally qualified experienced counsellor and  'just another' person with the trained skills, professional and life experiences to offer you the conditions to begin to reflect on you, relationships, your inner world, thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

I have over 15 years of qualified experience of working with individuals and young people. I love what I do.  I work in a person centered way, meaning I can work with almost any topic you decide to work on, even if you are not sure what that is, sometimes new feelings arise and the work can change direction, this is just one advantage of the Person Centered approach.

I can also offer supervision.

I am also a qualified Parenting Practitioner and have helped many families overcome challenging times, particularly during adolescence.

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.
