What is a BACP Accredited counsellor?
an accredited/registered counsellor with BACP, one must firstly have qualified as a counsellor. Thereafter, accreditation
is only gained by successfully demonstrating a high level of professional competence, and completing ongoing Continued Professional
Development. Further information concerning this can be obtained from the BACP website on the registration/accreditation
Whatever is discussed during our sessions remain confidential between you and I.
Confidentiality can only be broken if I believe that you are at risk or a danger to yourself or others; in such cases
I am obliged to inform outside agencies to seek help for you, but would aim to discuss with you first, where possible.
Making an appointment?
If you would like to arrange counselling with
me, please either call me on my landline number or mobile; please leave a message and convenient times for me to contact you
if I am unavailable, or feel free to email me and I will respond as soon as I am able.
What can I expect at our first appointment?
The initial assessment will last for 50 minutes.
Here we can discuss/explore your needs, ensure we are comfortable working together, consider what help is needed, and how
we can work together either on a short or longer term basis. We can then look at timetabling regular sessions as appropriate
My fees are £40 per session.
Occasionally, concessionary rates are available. I welcome EAP and G.P. referrals,
as well as individual referrals.
