About me

I  work with couples as well as individuals and young people to help you to understand why you feel the way you do and give you the space to find your own way forward.
I will listen in a non - directive, non-judgmental way understanding your world from your point of view. This should enable you to relate to others and yourself in a more satisfying way.

The starting point is to build a collaborative and trusting relationship between us which should then allow you to acknowledge and talk about your feelings, however difficult or uncomfortable they are. Working in a supportive way, emotions from the past and present will be allowed to surface and aspects of yourself which may have become hidden move into your consciousness.

I am accredited with the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and registered with UKRC (United Kingdom Register of Counsellors)
I also supervise counsellors individually and in groups

Please feel free to contact me with no obligation. I have more information on my website, and can be easily reached by email or phone.
I practice from my home close to Tewkesbury,situated between Cheltenham and Gloucester and easily accessible from Ledbury, Malvern and Worcester.
I also sometimes see people in cheltenham. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated from the University of Warwick with a Diploma in Person Centred in  Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2004.    I am a trained  Relationship /Couples counsellor.  In addition to my private practice I currently work in a local school as a counsellor  and have a clinical position in a counselling charity. 

I am  a supervisor  for counsellors who work with young people and adults.   

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.

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.
