About me

I am an an integrative counsellor committed to offering safe practise ass laid out by the BACP.   What this means for you is I am constantly engaged in keeping myself up to date in my professional development and attend regular supervision.

I offer effective help with many historic or present life issues. Often they are both interwoven as events from the past colour our present living. What I have come to understand from a lot of my clients is that it is not only a particular issue being brought to counselling that needs to be attended to. It is the anxiety, stress and depression that often sits alongside that is so difficult to manage. And this is where I believe working integrativley is such a benefit. It means I can draw from many different modalities of counselling to benefit whatever is around for you in any one session.

I In my practise I offer each client the compassion, respect and honesty from our first meeting. My approach to counselling is integrative with a core person centred approach. This means I value each one of my clients as an individual, and recognise that whilst we are all human our experience and view of life is unique to only us.

In the present covid scenario we are all living with I am offering my sevises on line and via the telephone. I am expereinced enough in this way of working now to assure you the work we do is as effective as meetoing face to face. The hardes part is making the initial contact. Please do make that contact though, everything is to be gained.

My fee's are as a rule £35 an hour although in the current climate I am offering lower priced sessions as well.

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.
