My private practice in West Berkshire provides space to explore and make sense of difficult thoughts and feelings that can, at times, feel overwhelming when struggling with them alone.
If you are experiencing difficulty with relationships at home or at work, bereavement, work related stress, depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, low self esteem or general feelings of lost confidence and motivation, I provide a confidential counselling service in West Berkshire and online.
I am a BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, have experience as a senior clinical manager, and have been in practice since 2003. My counselling experience is drawn from registered counselling charities, corporate counselling services and my private practice.

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.

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).
