About me

Successful counselling relies on you and your counsellor working together to help you achieve your goals. I work in an integrative way which means that we'll choose together the techniques that suit you best. If something's not working for you in the therapy, we'll change it and try another way.

Through the sessions, I will help you to gain insight into the issues that are troubling you and support you in your journey towards creating a more positive and productive way of life.

The next step

If you would like to talk to me about how we could work together, call my dedicated counselling telephone number 07464 081645 for a free confidential no-obligation initial chat. Any message you leave for me on my voicemail is confidential and can only be listened to by me.

Alternatively, you can use the email contact at the top of this page. Make sure you include your telephone number so I can call you back for an initial chat. This will help us make the most of our first session and let me answer any questions you may have.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked as a counsellor with adults, young people and children in a variety of settings, for example in schools and a Health Centre.

I was awarded a Distinction in my Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy (University of East London).

I am a registered member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy. My membership number is 323998.

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.

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.

There is plenty of parking at both my therapy room in Melton, Woodbridge and in Hadleigh. My therapy room in Melton is wheelchair accessible.
