About me

During these difficult times I am offering online counselling via Zoom. I am also starting to offer face to face counselling again as I can ensure social distancing in my therapy room.

As an experienced counsellor, I aim to provide you with a safe, non-judgemental place to help you with any painful or confusing thoughts, feelings and experiences you may have. I work in a warm and empathic way shaping the therapy to your particular needs. I am an 'integrative' therapist, which means I can use a variety of therapeutic styles and tools to help you. All my appointments are held in a lovely, peaceful log cabin in my garden

Training, qualifications & experience

I run my Private Practice from a beautiful log cabin in my garden and I worked for a number of years at an agency that specialised in supporting people who have been affected by Sexual Abuse or Rape.

I am also a lecturer in Counselling Studies at Basingstoke College of Technology

I am an 'integrative' therapist, which means I can use a variety of therapeutic styles and tools to help you. I hold the idea that there are many ways in which human psychology can be explored and understood - no one theory alone holds the answer. ​

The two main theoretical approaches that I draw from are Person-Centred and Psychodynamic counselling​

Person-centred therapy uses a non-authoritative approach that allows you, the client, to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, you will discover your own solutions. I act as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging your experience without moving the conversation in another direction. I am there to encourage and support you and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with your process of self-discovery.

​The aim of psychodynamic therapy is to bring the unconscious mind into consciousness - helping you to unravel, experience and understand your true, deep-rooted feelings in order to resolve them. It takes the view that our unconscious holds onto painful feelings and memories, which are too difficult for the conscious mind to process. In order to ensure these memories and experiences stay below the surface, many people will develop defences. According to psychodynamic therapy, these defences will often do more harm than good.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
