LEARN MORE ABOUT ME
I am subscribed to multiple Accredited Registers (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, National Counselling Society) that have been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. Accreditation demonstrates my commitment to high professional standards, to enhancing safety and delivering a better service. I was awarded the MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Keele University, itself a BACP accredited course. I maintain enhanced DBS checks. I work with some of the largest Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) in the UK, including Axa and CiC amongst others, to deliver nationwide help via telephone and online services. I have returned as a Senior Counsellor (voluntary) at Macmillan (Leighton, Crewe), supporting staff, cancer patients, carers, family members, the bereaved and many others (e.g. see this link). I feel that I have (and that we all have) a lot of very varied life-experience, which taught me that not only is it 'good to talk' - it can be vital. I believe that psychological and emotional well-being is just as important as physical well-being. I believe that you, as the client, need your own space to discover yourself and understand what YOU need, and though I can help facilitate this process, you must be prepared to work for yourself within therapy, and reap your own rewards. I believe it is most important that you find the right therapist for you before you begin your journey of healing.
