About me

I am a counsellor working with adults and young people age 11-18, in Bath and the surrounding areas.

My counselling training is in the Person-Centred and Integrative approach, which means I can adapt my way of working to meet the needs of each person individually.

I provide a non-judgemental, safe counselling environment where you can explore the issues that are important to you.

My work is based on the belief that with the right kind of support we can address the challenging issues in our lives, and journey towards self-understanding and wholeness.

Training, qualifications & experience

Since graduation from Network Counselling in Bristol, with a Diploma in Counselling, I have gained experience in working with both adults and young people covering a wide range of issues and in a variety of settings.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

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.

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.
