About Unity Counselling Service
I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist who has worked with a wide range of issues since 2007. In therapy, together we can explore how you can build the blocks to your own self empowerment. Reaching out can seem overwhelming at first but it is the most powerful thing you can do in terms of your own recovery. Seeing it as a strength, rather than a weakness. I founded Unity Counselling Service in 2011 and have also worked extensively in the Social Care Sector with children, families and young people. In the application of my counselling approach, I draw on various theoretical denominations including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic and Humanistic theory and interventions, usually on a one to one basis. I feel that working Integratively enables me to offer clients a customised therapeutic process, suited to an individuals unique requirements and circumstances. To this effect, I have worked with a variety of mental health issues and disorders over the years.
Counselling has always interested me and I have experienced accessing these services personally. I found counselling to be of immense benefit and wanted to, from then on, give of myself in the same way to support another persons growth and potential.
I am an Individual member of the BACP regulatory body and covered by Public Liability Insurance.

Unity Counselling Service was created in order to provide Counselling for those who may require an opportunity to explore a current concern or issue in a safe, non judgmental and empathic environment. You may be at a juncture or crossroads in your life and feeling that something seems to be hindering you from living your life fully.
This could be relative to work, social or familial/relationship stressors, or you may just not feel ‘yourself’.
In time, some of the distress felt if not acknowledged could manifest in many forms, including Anger, leading to Depression, Anxiety, Drug or Alcohol Abuse, Phobias, or self harming to name a few and when not addressed could have a debilitating effect on the overall quality of your living experience.
Sometimes the emotional dis-ease may be the result of a past or childhood experiences and it is in the present that the impact may be felt, for example with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
At UCS we have experience in dealing with the above symptomatic issues as well as Eating Disorders, Sexual, Emotional, Physical Abuse, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder but this is not an exhaustive listing. Furthermore, it is generally with the facilitation of a supportive non judgemental counselling relationship that change can more easily occur, whatever the concern.
With UCS, a completely confidential (subject to our Terms and Conditions) agency, you can be assured of a highly specialised and professional service with our Counsellors who consistently update their skills via Continued Professional Development.
At times and depending on your needs, short or longer term counselling may be necessary. This can be agreed with a Counsellor who will be matched to you based on your circumstances accordingly. At other times you may just need to have a one off session or communication and this will be available to you in the method you choose.
