I have recently added distance access to the therapy I offer. So I am now able to offer Skype, Zoom or phone sessions. Feel free to contact me to discuss if this would work for you.
I believe counselling and psychotherapy are a vital part of rediscovering our inner calling and enabling us to feel we can contribute confidently in our changing world.
We each know that we are unique individuals, yet frequently it can feel that we are ignored or over-ridden in order to fit-in with other people’s needs, which can cause confusion, anxiety, depression and hurt.
I offer an impartial, non-judgmental space, listening attentively, where you can express your feelings, fears, hopes and challenges.
It is a safe and confidential way to explore your depths and resources, and make sense of life.
Find ways to release fears; gain insight, purpose and direction; heal emotional wounds; relate more authentically.
My theoretical approach is integrative, through which I combine a soulful perspective with down-to-earth high-quality therapeutic skills
I work in private practice with adults and young people.
I have rooms at Viney Hall Physiotherapy Clinic, and accept clients referred through them, or with those who contact me directly.
Short term work, six to eight weeks, or long term, open-ended sessions available, depending on what we decide together is best suited you.
Sessions are 50 minutes, once a week.

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.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
