About me

I provide an affordable counselling service in a quiet and peaceful location, South of Bristol.
There is plenty of parking space next to the counselling room and a bus stop nearby.
I have been a practising counsellor since 2006 and achieved my Diploma from BCPC in July 2009.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified BCPC Counsellor, of which I am a registered member of BACP.  I set up my own practice in 2007.
Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked as a social worker, specialising in fostering and adoption work. Over the duration of my career, stemming over 40 years, I have worked with a variety of clients with a wide range of issues including addictions, abuse, health related issues, adoption issues, infertility, sex related issues, work related issues, bullying, abortion, depression, issues with sexuality, identity, loss, anger issues, difficulties with children and those who have self-harmed and/or had suicidal thoughts.
My work follows an Integrative, Psychodynamic and Humanistic approach on both a short and long term basis. I have done further training in mindfulness, loss and separation, suicide, domestic violence, adoption training, alcoholism, dying and bereavement as well as solution focused work and CBT training.
I offer both individual and couple counselling.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
