During our lives, there can be times when we find that life is harder to tolerate, and it can be at these times that it is difficult to share what is going on for us.
I offer individual therapies targeted at your personal needs in a confidential safe space where we can work together respectfully exploring your own emotions. Time for yourself spent in counselling can enable and facilitate the unraveling of thoughts and aid you in making sense of that which has been disrupting your peace of mind, this in turn helps us work toward positive outcomes.
I work as an Integrative Counsellor with clinics in Stoford near Yeovil. I also offer, zoom, starleaf and WhatsApp services.
My therapies include:
Person Centred Therapy (PCT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)
Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)
I also work with relaxation and breathing techniques to assist with anxiety, stress and panic disorders.
Individual time for you to address low self esteem, anxiety, stress and any concerns around addictive behaviours and relationship difficulties that may have become problematic. Bereavement or loss and Trauma can become overwhelming and difficult to deal with. Meaning making, decisions and moving on.
Person Centred Therapy works alongside the client providing them time to explore their personal thoughts and feelings.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy works collaboratively with the client whilst they consider and explore their own negative thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns working with Generalised anxiety disorder and Depression and work related stress.
During the free bief initial telephone consultation we will be able to discuss and safely explore together any worries and concerns that you may have, this will give you time to ask any questions about counselling and what it means to you.

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
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).
