About me

I am a professionally qualified and experienced therapeutic counsellor providing one to one remote online and telephone counselling, both short and long term to young people and adults aged 16+. 

If you are seeking support while facing unpredictable challenges and difficulties, I offer a safe and confidential space that is exclusively yours. I provide a warm and non-judgmental environment where you can feel supported and heard with someone from outside your day-to-day life. 

Sometimes the problems we face in life can start to get on top of us. It might be trouble with a relationship, anxiety, self-esteem, feeling overwhelmed, painful memories or low mood and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. 

Together we can reflect and explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives – and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes and potentially discovering new awareness and internal strength in managing your issues. Drawing on your own resources and developing self-acceptance to support any changes you want to make in your life. 

I practice using an integrative approach which is simpler than it might sound. I integrate various tools from different approaches to counselling to meet your individual needs.

We'll find creative ways of making online counselling work for you, by holding sessions by video conferencing or telephone. Either way, I will guide you through the process of creating a safe and therapeutic space at home to enable a positive and fulfilling experience of counselling.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Additional information

Sessions cost £60 - payment is made via bank transfer at least 24 hours prior.

I offer an initial 10-15 minute phone consultation which will help us both decide whether working together would be beneficial. There is no charge for this. 

We meet weekly usually and each session lasts for fifty minutes. The number of therapy sessions is completely your choice. Often we agree on an initial number and then we review to see how things are going and whether more sessions would be helpful to you. You can also stop counselling at any time.

Further information

I offer short term or longer term online and telephone counselling and have a range of weekday appointment times, some during the day and some in the evening - it's best to contact me; to see if we can arrange a time convenient for you.
