As an Integrative Psychosynthesis Counsellor and Psychotherapist, who has worked in the NHS, I am trained to listen and support you in finding your own inner resources for change or resolution.
My private practice is in Milton Keynes.
I offer a safe and private environment for you to talk about what troubles you, such as loss, anxiety, grief, depression, caring for a sick relative, or abuse.
As an older woman myself I have a particular interest in working with older people.
Please see my website: www.counselling60plus.co.uk.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am bound by its code of ethics.

I was a counsellor in an NHS Community Mental Health Team.
I have also worked as a counsellor in an agency for women survivors of abuse.
I have experience in cross-cultural counselling.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
