About me

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor and psychotherapist offering face to face, online & phone counselling and psychotherapy (both short and long term) for individuals in Basingstoke, Hampshire.

Whether you are experiencing specific issues or more complex concerns or overall feelings of confusion or depression, talking things through with me could well help.

I aim to offer a non-judgemental, confidential approach within which you can gain a better understanding of your life, then with that knowledge move forward with strength and vitality.

If this sounds like something you’d benefit from and would like to do, please contact me to arrange an initial consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been working with clients since 2007 in a variety of settings, including local charities covering a wide range of issues and working with young people and adults. I have also worked with offenders in a women’s prison. In addition, I now have a private practice.

My psychotherapeutic training has been ‘Integrative’ which means I can blend different approaches and consider different perspectives on the issues and clients I work with.

I have a background in corporate IT companies as an operations manager.

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.
