About me

Seeking therapy is often a brave action and is always a responsible thing to do. By choosing to explore what’s troubling you, you are choosing to get behind yourself and that in itself is a positive step. Therapy can be hard work, it can be cathartic, it can be painful and it can be freeing. I will always work at your pace and you will choose what you bring to therapy.

As a humanistic counsellor and psychotherapist I am interested in working with the whole of you, your knowledge and your confusion, your joy and your pain with the aim of supporting you to know more of yourself. With that increased awareness comes the possibility of change. My expertise is in supporting and guiding your exploration of what’s not working in your life and find ways of getting more satisfaction. I am empathetic and can also be challenging; I am good-willed and I will always act in your best interests. I don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach; we are all unique and I will get to know you as an individual and work with you in the way that best supports you.

For a free initial telephone session to talk about what you're wanting from therapy, call me on 07975 801084.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor in on-going supervision and professional development at Spectrum, a UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) registered centre for humanistic psychotherapy. I draw primarily on Gestalt Psychotherapy (developing awareness) and Formative Psychology (changing experience) as a basis for my work.

I hold an Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Certificate in Counselling Skills and am trained in Clinical Skills, Anger Management, Sexuality, Re-parenting, and working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and comply with the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice

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.
