About me

Many people find it very beneficial to have a regular time to focus on deeper needs. Too often, we tell ourselves that others are worse off than us and that we should be able to manage. My aim is to help you to understand yourself better and to work through any sense of being stuck with particular difficulties.

I offer a peaceful location ten minutes walk from Glastonbury High Street. Parking also available. In terms of access, there is one fairly small step.

I have come to value the power of our non-verbal thoughts and I find that some thoughts can be expressed much more easily by image-making than trying to put them into words. We can use creative approaches in our work together if you wish. The subconscious expresses itself in many ways.

I can help with issues such as bereavement, anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, relationship difficulties, changing relationships, issues from childhood, feeling stuck with your life, uncertain sense of self, creativity not flowing, trauma, either recent or historic, and coping with illness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified as a person-centred counsellor. I undertook my first placement as a counsellor at Cheddar Medical Centre, where the GPs referred people to me for help with anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship problems, issues from childhood and problems with self-confidence.

I have some experience and have done some further training in art therapy and supporting survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

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.

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.
