IaNTO COUNSELLING Do you need to find the right tools to help yourself? We all experience a wide range of feelings, such as personal loss, anxiety, grief, depression, anger and may have problems at home, at work, with relationships or from any other source. If you need a professional, confidential, friendly ear you can find one here. LEARN MORE ABOUT ME I hold Professional Accreditation status with the National Counselling Society (NCS) . Additionally, I am subscribed to multiple Accredited Registers (National Counselling Society (NCS) , British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ) that have been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority . Acceptance onto these registers 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 do not hold professional accreditation status with the BACP, but I am a Member of the BACP). 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, Vitality Health Insurance and Aviva Health Insurance to deliver local help (via face to face, telephone and online services) and nationwide help (via telephone and online services). Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is very important to me and I regularly attend professional development days, workshops and courses. I abide by the ethical framework of the NCS ( Code of Ethics ) and the BACP ( Ethical Framework ). 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.

Interview your counsellor first, educate yourself about what counselling is, and what it is not. Think about what you want to achieve from therapy. What is counselling? Counselling offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may seem confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things. Can counselling help me? I can help you explore what is troubling you or causing distress. Clients come to me because they want professional and empathetic support and help. I will listen and support you for as long as you need to start feeling better. I will help you explore your problems from a new perspective and assist you to find empowering solutions. How many sessions will I need? This will depend on individual circumstances. You may need more frequent sessions to begin with, typically once a week, and may choose to then alter the frequency, perhaps once per two weeks or once per month, or you may choose to end therapy. The total length of a course of therapy depends on your needs and situation. Some issues may be worked through successfully in just a few sessions and some issues may take longer.
