About me

You may be feeling generally anxious or worried or have a specific issue to deal with. Whatever is troubling you, we can explore it together in a confidential and safe environment. I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor working in private practice, having previously worked in the NHS. I also work as a trainer, supervisor and counsellor in a bereavement service so am used to dealing with loss and trauma. 

In my experience an important part of therapy is forming a trusting, empathic relationship during the counselling.  Then you can face the things that brought you to therapy and start to understand your feelings and behaviour.  My role is to help you interpret what has gone on in the past, look at the present, and consider how you might like to change things for the future.

Whether you are feeling anxious, depressed, have relationship issues, have suffered a loss, or life just seems too difficult, the opportunity to speak to someone who is understanding and non-judgemental can make a huge difference.

I adhere to the codes of practice of these organisations.

My training includes a BSc in Psychology, post graduate and advanced diplomas in Integrative Psychotherapy, training in EMDR and supervision.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
