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.

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.
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.
