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 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.
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.
