About me

As an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist I offer you a safe space to express yourself freely, without fear of judgement and in confidence so as to bring about a deeper understanding of yourself and to improve your mental health and wellbeing.

Troubling thoughts and emotional issues may have been whirring around for some time now or have just reared up. It could be that they are triggered by relationship issues, panic, stress and anxiety and you feel so overwhelmed that life is a struggle. It may be that these feelings are difficult to express; they may be deeply private or cause distress to others. It is time for you to unburden yourself, to speak candidly about what these issues are and to be supported with warmth and understanding.

Initially we meet for a 60 minutes assessment session where we explore what you would like from therapy. It can be open ended or, if you prefer short term work. My approach is integrative drawing from psychoanalytic, existential and person-centred perspectives. Together we will look at the issues concerning you and the impact on your life. We will look at coping strategies and how to resolve present day difficulties. To do this we will look at previous experiences in childhood through to adulthood to get a sense of why these experiences may influence and impact you today.


How to get started with therapy.

The first thing to do is to call or email me so as to set up an initial session where we explore what brings you to therapy and what it is that you want to get out of it. After the first session, you can decide if you wish to continue, and if so, we would arrange future sessions; it could be weekly or on a more casual basis. Whether you decide you would like short term or long term work and the frequency of sessions-it's entirely up to you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
