About me

I am an integrative counsellor, my main goal is to build a safe, trusting, and non judgemental relationship so you feel comfortable to open up and be yourself.  Not many people are able to get that in the judgemental world we live in. People always want to give us advice. Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive step and the first step in your growth. So whatever your problem no matter how big or small you will be listened to with respect.  I offer a space where you can explore personal or difficult feelings and it can help you make sense of it all.  Freeing you to move towards making the changes you want in your life.  My motivation is to provide that safe relationship whereby you can explore your inner world, gain a better understanding of yourself and become empowered to live an authentic life.

You don’t have to suffer alone, its okay its not be okay. It’s okay not to know. It can be daunting coming to counselling but we will take one step at a time.

I am based in Basingstoke. I also offer online or telephone therapy

I have worked with young people and adults. I specialise in working with young people as I’ve done extra training. I have worked with all ages so please don’t hestaite to get in touch. I have worked with anxiety, depression, life problems, relationship problems. Low self esteem and confidence issues to name a few. Drop me an email and let’s discuss what you need and get you booked in.

I work well with all ages but have a passion and extra training in working with young people between the ages of 12 and 25 years old.

My belief is if you can work with young people you can work with anyone. We all have an inner child inside of us.

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.
