About me

'Using years of great experience and a solid academic background in Psychotherapy, I'll help you make informed choices and in a way that honours you. My private practice is my home in Portrush - its intimate, safe, and secure.

Getting Started

Starting anything new can be a real challenge. I am happy to guide you through this early phase by phone or by email or if you would rather we can meet and have an initial chat. If any of the above would help just contact me and we will see which one suits you best.

I offer...

Humanistic Therapy. For me Therapy begins a natural process which discloses who we are..... as opposed to who we are not.

Warmest wishes. Yvonne

You can contact me via email or call 07747084762.

Training, qualifications & experience

I studied Counselling/Psychotherapy at Metanoia and graduated with an Honours Degree and Diploma from Middlesex University, London.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Further information

Anxiety locks us out of our life and inside our own body. It keeps us in solitary confinement shackled to other's judgements, gossip, and opinions.

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.

Wheelchair user access

this is a regret but I live in an old house. If telephone counselling is something you would consider I would be glad to counsel you in this way. sincerely Yvonne
