About me

Every one of us at times face challenges and dilemmas – milestones in our lives and transition points that can leave us confused or emotionally charged. You might be feeling anxiety, unhappy in your relationship, dis-satisfied at work or experiencing ill-health or loss. You may be lacking in confidence or unsure of the way ahead. Sometimes we need to step back, review and refocus – to look at what matters to us and to make new decisions that support us. Whatever it is that you are facing at this time there is a good chance that counselling or Psychotherapy may help you find your way through. Its a great opportunity to sort out what is going on inside and to express thoughts and feelings you might never have expressed or even acknowledged to yourself before. It is a safe space to explore whatever is important to you at this time and to explore decisions and changes if that is what matters to you most right now.

I am a qualified and experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor. I work holistically and aim to support you to find your own answers and your best way forward. It is my role to encourage a safe space for you to share your experiences and feelings, dilemmas and choices and to support you in achieving the outcomes that are right for you.

  • BSc Psychology (Hons)
  • Diploma in Transpersonal Counselling and Psychotherapy – CCPE

I am a qualified experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor working in private practice. I have experience of providing psychotherapy, counselling and both Executive and Life Coaching for adults. My background is in Senior Management and Human Resources and this adds to the skills and experience I bring.

I abide by the Ethical Code of Conduct of my professional bodies (BACP and UKCP).

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
