About me

I can help to support you if you are experiencing a difficult time in your life, or if things feel like they are becoming too much. Is it becoming harder to function in your day to day? Its common to feel like no one truly understands and this can be very worrying and isolating.  I can help you by providing a confidential and non judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings and gain a wider prospective and self awareness.

I work as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist which enables me to work uniquely and flexibly using evidence based modalities. I use CBT, person centred, psychodynamic and gestalt counselling modalities to help you to get the best out of your counselling experience.

I will work to help you achieve your goals for attending counselling.  You may have one or several reasons for seeking counselling and I will always regularly review our sessions to make sure you are getting what you need from them.

I have experience working with anxiety and depression, trauma, abuse, work related issues, relational issues, marriage and betrayal, bereavement, life limiting illness, low self esteem and negative self belief, to name a few.

Please do contact me and I am happy to provide a free telephone chat or book an initial session with no obligation to continue.

I work in person in Chorleywood and Chalfont Saint Peter, but can provide online counselling wherever you are. I can also provide walk and talk therapy in Buckinghamshire in Hertfordshire.

Counsell

Counselling really does change lives! I look forward to helping you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Professional, experienced and I work according to the BACP ethical framework for counselling professionals ensuring a high standard of quality and safe practice.

Member organisations

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
