About me

I'm an experienced, accredited counsellor offering a calm, quiet, non-judgemental environment. You can use our sessions to offload, for support with an issue that's effecting your life right now, or to explore more long standing issues to help prevent the same negative feelings in the future.

I have an FdA in Humanistic Counselling with Transactional Analysis. This means that I am trained in recognising the personal growth potential in all of us, to offer a non-judgmental environment to explore this in and to work with you to explore how your past has influenced the decisions you’ve made and how you interact with others – from family and partner to friends and colleagues.

My training since has largely been about the importance of the client / counsellor relationship, gaining a BSc in Reflective Therapeutic Practice from Metanoia. I’m continuing this with post-diploma training in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy at Re-Vision.

I offer evening and daytime sessions and am based in Whitchurch in Hampshire, less than 10 miles from Basingstoke, Andover, Newbury and Winchester. Just 5 minutes from the A34.

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.

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
