I offer on line, phone and now some face to face counselling. You might be thinking the time has come to get some professional help. You don't want to feel the way you are feeling and you want to be able to cope with certain things that are making you feel anxious and alone. It's very hard at times to talk to friends and family as you don't want to burden them with your problems. Maybe you'd like to understand why you are having different emotions and behaviours that trouble you. You might need some time and space where it is just for you to be really heard. Well hopefully that might be where I come in.
As a counsellor I can help you to believe in your own potential. Make the changes you need to reach your goals. Help to build self awareness and self esteem. Help you make choices that are your choices. Take responsibility for your life. Be more aware of your own needs and enable you to feel more confident and at peace with yourself.
I really want to understand your world and give you the space and time that will be just for you from your point of view. I offer warmth confidentiality and honesty. I believe I care deeply and hope I can give you the opportunity to have a full and satisfying life as that is truly every person's right.
I also offer clinical supervision to individual and small groups of qualified counsellors. For several years I worked as a clinical supervisor at a reputable counselling service. This has been a wonderful learning experience as i have worked with many counsellors and psychotherapists using different modalities in practice. Therefore I am very integrative in my approach to supervision. My Gestalt supervision qualification was from the Gestalt Centre London with Gaie Houston.

I look forward to hearing from you.

As a counsellor I believe in building an honest safe trusting environment. Helping my clients to explore their own creativity self awareness and responsibility. I have a history of working professionally in the theatre and TV world as a performer. This led me to a creative transition into my present role where I feel I can help to encourage self expression, experimentation and a certain amount of risk taking. Over the years I have worked both as a counsellor and also supervised many counsellors. I feel very lucky. There is always a wonderful experience for all of us constantly learning from each other, which enables each counsellor to develop as creative innovative and inspiring therapists.
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.
