About me

My approach to counselling is that its not 'about me', but you. Here though is a bit about my counselling experience, for you to be reassured about some of the issues I have worked with :

 

  • Bereavement / Loss

  • Substance misuse

  • Depression

  • Domestic violence

  • Self esteem

  • Physical Disabilities

  • Rejection 

  • Relationships

  • Anxiety

  • Work related issues

  • Coping with long term injury / physical health

Person Centred is not about me giving advice or giving you solutions to problems, we explore your feelings and understand your needs. Its a safe space where you can talk about things you maybe can't or wouldn't talk to a friend or family member about. You can feel valued, cared for and accepted as a person. Counselling can help with many issues that could be holding you back.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) which means I am bound by their code of ethics and work within their good practice guidelines and the BACP ethical framework. The ethical framework can be accessed by visiting www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework

 

I adhere to a strict duty of confidentiality and anything you disclose during a session will remain in strict confidence. Exceptions to this will be discussed and agreed between us prior to the first session.

 

As a counsellor working within the BACP ethical framework my work is subject to supervision by a suitably qualified supervisor, to ensure the needs of my clients are met and provide me with support and guidance.
