About me

I’m a BACP registered counsellor offering sessions in Cambridge, online and Burwell which is a village north of Cambridge.

My approach to counselling is integrative having trained in person-centred, humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. I believe you are the expert of your own life, even if it doesn’t feel that way at the moment. I’m here to offer a safe, non-judgemental and nurturing environment in which I will support and help you as we explore the issues which led you to seek counselling.

Our first session will be an introduction session where I can get more of an understanding of why you are seeking counselling, explain how our sessions might work and you can ask me any questions you might have. It will be completely up to you if you'd like to continue.

Before training as a counsellor, I worked in a corporate environment for large organisations and bring knowledge and understanding of how this type of environment works and the related stress and pressure that can come with it.

I also have a particular interest in infertility, donor conception and relationship dynamics be that family, friends, work or romantic.

If you're struggling please get in touch and find out how counselling with me can help you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
