About me

I offer a safe, confidential space, for individuals and couples, to talk through difficulties and challenges that may feel overwhelming. Together we can explore how these may have come about and look at the options.

You may have a relationship issue or stress at work. You may have had a bereavement or are just feeling isolated and alone. You may be feeling depressed and anxious or you may be struggling with an addiction or another coping disorder.

I am a qualified counsellor and adhere to a professional code of ethics. I am non judgemental and supportive and will try to understand you and your situation, enabling you to get a clearer picture of the way forward.

It can feel scary and uncomfortable but with support from someone neutral and outside your normal world, it can be a relief just to talk and can be surprisingly enlightening.

I work from a quiet village location, which has good parking and is wheelchair accessible.

I offer short or long term therapy for individual and couples.

My telephone number - 07896 921690 - is my dedicated 'work' number and is secure and confidential.

If I don't answer it might be because I am working,  just not get to the phone on time or on days when I'm not working and so away from it.

Do please leave me a message; voice or text (it is checked regularly, even on days I'm not working) and I will get back to you.  

The quickest way to contact me is by email, but which ever way works best for you, I will respond as quickly as I can and am more than happy to arrange a convenient time to chat on the phone (even if that's not one of my dedicated working days), if that would help.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BACP accredited professional qualification in Psychodynamic Counselling.

I have experience in counselling for a drugs and alcohol agency, a general counselling charity and a further education college.

Having worked for an agency delivering an NHS service under the IAPT scheme and seen GP referral clients ranging from 13 to 90, I have a considerable experience working with clients with a wide range of issues in both short and longer term therapy.

I have attended extensive further training courses including working with couples, psychosexual, beyond the dyad, sexual healing, abuse, depression and mourning, problems before and after bereavement, compulsive eating, relationships ending, working with trauma, body language and symbolism, love & hate, working with anger, dissociation, mindfulness, female sexuality, post traumatic stress, shame and OCD.

I've also had some training in IPT (Interpersonal Psychotherapy).

My experiences personally, in and out of the home, before becoming a counsellor add to my empathy and understanding.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.

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.

Discrete, quiet village location with plenty of parking.
