I am an experienced counsellor and an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I work Integratively, which means I have many different styles of counselling available to me for working alongside you as you discover ways to manage the distress that brought you to counselling in the first instance.
I believe in creating a warm, supportive and safe enviroment from which you can explore the difficulties you face, rediscover your strengths and make changes that will improve your life.Many of the professional roles I have held across a thirty year career have included change management and supporting groups, couples and individuals to explore their full potential.I specialise in relationship counselling and work with couples and families.I am currently Clinical Lead with a Dorset abuse agency.
Counselling sessions can be arranged during the day or evening and weekend sessions are available.
I am also offering counselling remotely and will continue to offer supervision to those out of area in this way.
I am happy in a one to one or group setting and also have experience of corporate settings serving many national employee assistance programmes
Please contact me for more information or an informal chat.
I can also provide clinical supervision to those working in the helping professions and other counsellors either face to face or by telephone.In particular I support therapists working with adults who have experienced adverse childhood situations.
I look forward to meeting you.

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.
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.
