About me

Let’s find a way, together.

How counselling can help

Expressing our inner thoughts and feelings in the company of someone who we trust and who truly hears us can help make sense of what we struggle to understand about ourselves.   This increased understanding and self-awareness can allow us to make more informed choices about our lives and our relationships, offering greater freedom and new opportunities, but change can also be uncomfortable and sometimes unsettling.

As your counsellor I will be there to support you to explore any problems or concerns you have, no matter how big or small you think they are, in a safe and confidential environment where you set the pace.   I can offer you the space to feel heard and valued, sharing my experience and knowledge with kindness and without judgement.

What does being an 'integrative' counsellor mean?
I am a qualified integrative counsellor which means I have trained in more than one counselling style and I believe this makes me more flexible in how we approach our work together, tailoring it to suit your needs.

How I work
I offer counselling in a number of different ways depending on your situation. We can work online, over the telephone or face to face in a traditional room-based setting.   I also work outdoors with a Walk and Talk service in our local green spaces – this can offer an alternative experience to traditional counselling. It may appeal if the idea of face to face counselling is too intense, for those who don’t want a sedentary counselling session or for those who already have a connection to nature and the outdoors and feel it would enhance their experience.

What to do next
If what you've read on my profile strikes a chord with you and you would like to have an initial chat, please get in touch by phone or email. I am available Monday to Friday and will respond quickly to your contact.

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.
