The aim is to create a space, online or over the telephone, where you feel safe to share difficult parts of yourself and work towards growth and self-compassion. Working with you in a non-judgmental capacity enables trust to build in a counselling process that is tailored to your needs.
I am a qualified counsellor that works integratively with clients, taking aspects of well-established counselling models to best serve the client. People can feel lost and isolated at the time of seeking help but the first step is to see if counselling is the right fit for you and what you feel able to cope with. I can work creatively to help clients unlock untapped aspects of themselves. The counselling process, with the right relationship, can be the key to the change that is needed and a supportive place to reflect each week.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified counsellor with a Level 5 Diploma and am a registered member of the BACP. I have experience with working with a range of issues. They include: anxiety, loss, grief, low mood and low self-esteem. I currently work with charities: Cruse Bereavement Care, RASASC and Off the Record. In the past I have worked with Place2Be and The Wellbeing Centre. It has enhanced my knowledge and way of working. I am open and curious when working with clients, with the aim to make them feel comfortable in my company. I send a welcome letter explaining how I operate, then if a potential client wants to know more, we set up an initial assessment session to see if we are a good fit. Take a look at my website if you would like to find out more.
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.
