About me

Thank you for taking a look at my site.

I initially trained as a nurse over 40 years ago, remaining linked to the care professions to the present day.

I have been working in my own counselling practise in Caterham for over 20 years. My way of working is integrative using a variety of approaches to suit your individual needs, and we will decide together what are your aims.

I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and the Person-Centred Art Therapy Association (P.C.A.T.A), and work within their codes of ethics and professional practise.

I will not Judge or advise you, this is your 'time 2 talk' and experience the power of being really heard and understood.

My counselling history Includes, working in private practise for 20 + years at wen beaton counselling in caterham, I have worked at a local hospice and a charity supporting young people (Heads Together) and currently working with The Lucy Rayner Foundation

Talking therapies aim to:

  • Explore choices and action
  • Release bottled up feelings
  • Enable you to feel heard and understood
  • Increase your understanding of underlying problems, as well as obvious areas of division and dispute.

Given the right support and conditions, we can make the changes we need in order to fulfill our potential.

My background in nursing and healthcare means that I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is at the centre of the counselling process, and it is ultimately this relationship that most promotes well-being, growth, healing and change 

My approach is integrative and broadly humanistic based on Carl Rogers person-centred approach, Gestalt therapy, Transactional Analysis, and cognitive behavioural counselling (CBT). I Also draw on a variety of creative methods to work with each  individual client.

I studied for my diploma in counselling and transactional analysis certificates at Wealden college.

I believe that using creative methods, such as person-centred art therapy, gestalt body awareness and free expression can lead to a deeper understanding of how we think, feel and behave in our lives and may deepen our ability to relate more effectively with ourselves and to others.

Regular sessions are for 50 minutes.

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.

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.

Further information

Talking about your problems in a safe and confidential environment with a qualified, non-judgemental counsellor can help you to make sense of how you are feeling and even enable you to explore how your past experiences and unexpressed feelings may still be affecting your current situation(s), and help you to recognise your strengths and resources to help you to make and implement any changes you choose to make, supported by me in the therapeutic relationship.

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.
