Do you need an impartial, non-judgmental space where you can explore your emotional distress, anxieties, depression and hurt?
I am particularly interested in working with people facing challenges. The kind of troubles and fears that cause us to ask, “Why is this happening to me? Why now?”
I believe counselling and psychotherapy are a vital part of facinging long held doubts and insecurities, that helps us to discover our inner calling, and enable us to feel we can contribute confidently in our changing world.
It helps to find ways to release fears, gain insight, purpose and direction, heal emotional wounds and relate more authentically, through this reparative, reflective therapeutic relationship.
I offer a safe and confidential way to explore your depths and resources, and make sense of life.
My theoretical approach is integrative, through which I combine a soulful perspective with down-to-earth high-quality therapeutic skills.
I am also interested in eco-psychology and the impact of the environment on our day to day lives.
I work in private practice with adults and young people, face-to-face at Viney Hall Physiotherapy Clinic, or in my campervan in a quiet woodland location. Or remotely on Skype or Zoom. Contact me to discuss which would work for you.
Short term work, six to eight weeks, or long term, open-ended sessions available, depending on what we decide together is best suited to 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.

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).
