About me

At the heart of the counselling process is the creation of a special relationship which has the potential to be healing and life-affirming. My role in that relationship is to aid your exploration of the issues you wish to focus on. If you would like to discuss us working together, please either email, phone or text me.

I favour a pluralistic approach which means that you, the client, take the lead in sessions so that you may come to discover your own solutions and have a say in how we work together. I act as a facilitator, or fellow traveller, listening without judgment while helping to shine a light on areas which may be in shadow; I am there to encourage and support you in a process of self-discovery, which may involve challenging you to view things from different angles.

Training, qualifications & experience

The professional qualification I hold is an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling.

I was a teacher, both overseas and in the UK, for many years before retraining as a counsellor and so I feel very comfortable working with young people.

I regularly attend Professional Development workshops and conferences such as:

* BACP Conference  "Identity: Can you tell me who I am?"

* How to help clients with their anger

* Working with the unprepared client

* The importance of being playful within the therapeutically reparative relationship

* Gender variant children and trans adolescents (online)

* Working at relational depth

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Fees

My fees are £40 for each 60 minute session, taking place usually at the same time each week. The number of sessions you would like to have will be reviewed periodically during our time together.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified

Entry is through a garden gate. The path there is over a grass patch which is slightly uneven. The lane up to the path is fairly steep.

Evening and weekend appointments available.  Face-to-face sessions in my garden studio  (social distancing and other safety guidelines implemented).
