About me

You may call me Penelope or Penny. I am 53, married with two adult children.

At times life will burden each one of us with pressures or difficulties. We can find that we are so engrossed in the issue that we don't recognise the most obvious course of action.

I believe that you do have the answer it's just you don't know it, so we will work together so you will find it.

Friends and family can sometimes help, but often we will tell different parts to different people, this will give you the opportunity to say all of it in one space.

My therapy room is in my home, it is downstairs with a picture window over looking the enclosed back garden.

Feedback:

'I honestly don't know where I'd be if I hadn't started coming to you. I've come such a long way in ways I never thought I could which is in no small part down to you. Your listening, calmness, and thoughts quickly made me feel very comfortable (a rare thing for me) and meant I could really be myself and more honest than I've ever been. Thank you.'  (A.W.)

                                          ***********************************

'Thank you so much for the help you have given me over the past 5 weeks. I feel so much stronger and able to cope with any possible situation in the future, and without your help I feel I would be in a totally different place for a lot longer than I am now. Again thank you.'  (S.)

                                                *********************************
'Myself and my partner had a series of counselling sessions with Penny spanning nearly six months. We have both had individual counselling before but never as a couple and I found the idea daunting and exposing.
We had a lot of confusion in our lives bought on by circumstances and dubious decisions and were quite lost and taking it out on each other.                          O
ver the weeks Penny was able to help us unravel the confusion, in a safe space she was able to slowly help us unpick the real issues and look at our life and relationships with perspective. Some of the results were shocking and quite literally life changing.                                                                              I personally was amazed at how much of myself I could explore and dare to face. With warmth and empathy but always professional Penny was there for me and my partner at the most difficult time of our relationship.I cannot thank her enough for the safe space we created together and the strength I now feel to carry on.'  (J.N)           
                                       
                                                 *********************************************

'Although I was unsure about discussing my problems and dilemmas with complete stranger, I can say it was one of the best things I have done. I am now evaluating my life...I am no longer scared of change...'

                                                ***********************************************

'It's like getting a birds eye view on whats happening and puts everything into perspective.  When you are 'in' the situation you can't see or understand why things are happening the way they are around you.'    (J.K.)

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
