About me

I am a BACP accredited counsellor with an M.A in counselling and have 25 years experience in counselling. I have worked as a counsellor in the Rutland and Leicestershire area for 26 years, and have written and had published clinical treatment books both in the US and the UK. I am also a painter/artist.

I am an empathetic, non-judgmental, and supportive individual with strong listening skills. I currently offer counselling to adults of all ages.  Counselling services are confidential and are provided from my rural home, which means I can be very flexible regarding appointment times.

I am an integrative counselor, as I am trained and specialize in a number of different orientations such as cognitive, psychodynamic, person-centered and self psychology. Sessions can be tailored to your individual needs.

Over the past 25 years I have specialized in treating the following issues:

- low self-esteem or self-worth
- anxiety & stress
- depression
- eating issues and disorders
- relationship issues
- difficult life transitions
- bereavement
- chronic illness
- post-traumatic stress disorder
- obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
- abuse and trauma

Counselling is an effective treatment for many emotional and mental health issue, as well as being a great resource for individuals undergoing any crisis or stressful life transition. All of us experience these issues at some point in our lives and subsequently we can feel isolated and alone. Many individuals find that speaking to someone in a safe and therapeutic environment, helps them to make the right choices, and to move forward in a more positive and satisfying direction. In counselling being listened to, heard and supported, can make all the difference.

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 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.

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.
