About me

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor with 20 years experience of counselling a huge diversity of people. I have been trained in 3 different theoretical approaches, which I feel helps me to adapt to the people I meet, finding the approach that suits the person. I enjoy short and long term work, and I am happy to tailor the therapy to the individual needs of my clients.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc (Hons) in Clinical Psychology from Kent University and a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology from London Metropolitan University. I have been a counsellor for 20 years working with private clients, NHS referrals and Employer Assistance Programs. I taught psychology and counselling courses for adult education for 12 years before focusing on my private practice. I am currently training in therapies that used mindfulness, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassionate Mind Therapy.  
I have been supervising counsellors for 10 years and I finished a Post-Graduate Diploma in Clinical Supervision with Inter-Psyche in 2012.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
