About me

I am a qualified and widely experienced counsellor and supervisor working with individuals and couples; I have been in private practice since 2002.
I offer a confidential, non judgemental environment where you can safely explore issues, difficulties and feelings you are experiencing and find ways to work through them. There are times when experiences from the past may be impacting you in the present and these too can be safely talked about. The first step into counselling can feel difficult and perhaps anxiety provoking, and that is very understandable. Therefore I want to assure you that whatever you are finding it difficult to cope with I would welcome meeting with you.

The counselling is set at a pace which suits each individual client, and can be short or longer term, and is reviewed and negotiated as appropriate. I work in an integrative way so that the counselling can fit the needs of each individual.

I have worked within the charitable sector in different settings, and continue to do so, providing counselling across a wide range of issues. I work long and short term, and within time limited contracts.
I offer counselling in the person's home for those whose circumstances, whether it be age illness, or disability, prevent them from accessing it externally. I also offer telephone and online video video counselling.

I am a registered member of BACP and a registered accredited member of the Association of Christian Counsellors; I work within the code of Ethics and Good Practice of both these professional bodies. I place tremendous value on, and respect the uniqueness of, each person and their circumstances working within the value and belief system of each individual.

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.

ACC

Association for Christian Counsellors

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.

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.
