Counsel UK - Helping The UK Feel Better...
Within my work, my clients are at the heart of the work and I use a relational based talking approach. This relationship offers respect, understanding, acceptance and care.
As an Accredited and Registered Member of BACP, my work is representative of the high quality standards, ethics and professionalism as set out by the BACP (www.bacp.co.uk).
Specialising in working with Young People, holding 21 years of experience of working with clients aged 11 to 25 years. with over ten years of experience of being a Secondary School Counsellor on several schools and counselling research projects.
Additionally, I hold extensive experience working with Adult clients, on a wide range of difficulties.
Please get in touch with me to discuss any problem you require help . I will help put you at ease and I am deeply respectful of peoples' difficulties, whatever they may be.
Anxiety difficulties, relationship issues, stress, depression or bereavement, self esteem, confidence building, feeling lost? These are just a few of the issues that come into Counselling and Psychotherapy. Through working through things together, this eases the distress through a safe space to talk, being heard and understood. As we know people are affected in unique ways and this is due to everyone being different. I am concerned with how things affect you and how you would like things to be different.
I offer both long and short term work, tailor made to each persons' requirements, as everyone is different. I work in a Person-Centered Way / Integrative Way.
I hold an Enhanced CRB check and I am fully insured.
