In these uncertain times that we are all currently experiencing, it can increase anxiety and confusion which may affect your daily lives. I will listen to your concerns, support you and provide techniques to manage your concerns. I am offering Skype counselling, if you are unable to leave your home.
I am a BACP Accredited practitioner that works with a variety of people from all walks of life. I bring an extensive knowledge of professional experience to my work with clients.
I work with individuals, young adults and couples and offer both short and long term therapy on a variety of presenting issues; these include complex mental health issues, bereavement, anxiety, emotional, relationship issues, trauma and OCD.
I also work with business professionals who are experiencing stress and/or redundancy and depression.
My humanistic approach stems from a belief that every human being is unique and views the world in an individual way. I work with people in the “here and now” while paying attention to their past and the impact that has had on them as individuals. This could include childhood experiences or learnt values and relationship patterns. The aim is to encourage understanding and an enhanced awareness of the choices and values that can be made to enable empowerment.
Training, qualifications & experience
Qualifications include my Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling (CPCAB) and regularly attend training courses and seminars as part of my commitment to continued professional and personal development
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and fully insured working under the BACP Code of Ethics
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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Concessions offered for
Counselling requires commitment from both sides. I understand that it is important for you, as the client, to feel comfortable both with me and the environment we will be working in.
I therefore offer an initial 30 minute consultation free of charge. This enables us to get to know each other, for me to understand your concerns and explain more of the way I work. This also gives you time to assess whether you feel this approach maybe helpful to you.
£50:00 for fifty minutes for one person
£80:00 for fifty minutes for couple counselling
Student Offering/Trainee Counsellors: I can offer £35 per session
Monday, Tuesday & Wednesdays from 6pm-9pm . Thursdays & Fridays day time and evening appointments and Saturday mornings
I offer my clients a safe and confidential, non-judgemental environment in which they can explore their personal concerns.
My private practice, is located in a peaceful environment, just outside Farnham, Surrey, (Lower Bourne)
I worked as a voluntary practitioner with individulas with complex mental health concerns for 10 years.
My experience also includes working at a charity organisation (Age UK) managing the counselling department. Managing the referrals, heading monthly meetings, supporting a team of trainee and experienced counsellors with their course requirements and professional development.
I also facilitated monthly bereavement group therapy sessions.
