I believe that a person’s journey is as individual as they are, with that in mind my practice draws on various therapeutic models most suited to the person and the issues that they bring. I offer short and long term counselling and psychotherapy in the Bumpers Farm area of Chippenham. My room is located within a Physiotherapy clinic, which offers parking spaces. I work one to one with adults and have experience of working with a wide range of issues. An initial, no cost, session of 30 mins is offered to help you get a sense of what counselling is like and to explore how we might work together. Subsequent sessions will be of 50 minutes duration.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified from the University of Oxford and have been practicing for over ten years. Through my training and subsequent work, I have gained clinical experience within NHS settings, charitable organisations and corporate environments, having worked for a leading provider of Employee Assistance Programs.
I have had a varied career in the mental health field and have worked in various NHS Mental Health settings and latterly worked in secure environments for a number of years, also with the NHS. I provide Critical Incident support to corporate organisations.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work in accordance with their ethical framework.
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.

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).
