About me

We all go through difficult times in our lives and experience stressful transitions, traumatic events and significant turning points. During such times, many people find it helpful to turn to a counsellor for support.

Counselling offers a supportive space, unique in that it is free from the agendas and expectations of others which are normal in most social situations.

In the safety of that space we can, together, explore current situations, look forward to the future and process past experiences.

I work in a holistic way which honours body, mind and spirit, giving attention to thoughts and feelings mainly through dialogue. We may also engage with dreams and other creative processes and techniques that help you access your own experience more fully.

Through both support and appropriate challenge, experiential exploration and shared reflection, counselling often opens the way towards easing suffering, (re)discovering the truth of who we are and how we want to live. It can lead us towards a more meaningful experience of life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a Psychodynamic Counsellor in 2007 having trained for five years at the University of Leicester and went on to gain an MA in 2009. In 2015 I completed a three year Post-Diploma training in Integrative Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy at Re-Vision Centre for Integrative Psychosynthesis in London. Having continued my studies at Re-Vision I have now gained a Certificate in Supervision.

In addition to my private practice, I have experience of counselling in the Psychotherapy Department of an NHS hospital and in various charitable organisations including many years with Milton Keynes Sexual Assault Support Service.

I work as a Supervisor, both with individuals and groups.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
