About Madeleine

Am I the right counsellor for you?

 

I work with clients experiencing anxiety, social anxiety, depression, low self esteem, stress, feeling sad, low self confidence, loneliness and panic attacks for a wide range of reasons.

 

I am experienced at working with university students and student specific concerns including academic stress, parental estrangement and navigating both the start and end of university. 

A full list of the areas I work with can be found on my Psychology Today and Counselling Directory profiles. 

My qualifications and experience

I am an experienced, accredited member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, the largest membership body for counsellors and psychotherapists in the UK. 

 

What does this mean? To become an accredited member of BACP, a counsellor must have completed at least three years of supervised clinical practice and meet their standards as a "competent, ethical and independent practitioner" which includes working in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework.

 

I work as a counsellor at the University of York. I provide counselling for students at all stages of their academic studies from first year undergraduates to doctoral candidates. 

Training 

I hold a CPCAB (Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. 

 

I am required to keep to a high standard of ongoing training and development. I undertake a minimum of 30 hours of Continuing Professional Development each year in line with my BACP membership requirements. 

Additional experience 

Alongside my counselling work I teach CPCAB Level 3 counselling courses for York Learning.

I previously worked as a counsellor for Phoenix Health and Wellbeing in Leeds and as a Young People's Mentor for York Mind.

​I am fully insured, hold an enhanced DBS certificate and am registered with the Information Commissioner's Office.

Prior to being a counsellor I worked in public and academic library and information services. I have always enjoyed working with people and my library work developed my ability to quickly make connections with others. This is an ability which underpins my therapeutic practice today.  

 

I hold MA and BA degrees from the University of Sheffield.
