I work in private practice offering relational integrative counselling. I also work outdoors, offering equine-assisted therapy and outdoor therapy, such as 'walk and talk' sessions. I am based on a beautiful 75-acre nature reserve farm near Charmouth/Lyme Regis.
Please note: during the Covid-19 precautionary period I am working outdoors in the fresh air and on the phone/online using e.g. Zoom, Facetime or Whatsapp video calls.
Alongside my private practice, I work at a local counselling charity in Axminster, specialising in bereavement, loss and transition.
My indoor counselling work is for adults and the outdoor therapy is for anyone regardless of age. Please note that I am not a specialist child/young persons counsellor, however the outdoor nature-based/equine-assisted sessions are designed to help with emotional self-regulation (for example to help with stress or anxiety), or to develop emotional tools or coping strategies or to address issues around confidence or communication.
Whether indoors or outdoors, I specialise in stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement, confidence, communication, self-development, relationship skills and autism-related issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
Certificate in Counselling; Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling (BACP accredited training); Equine-assisted therapist (certified with LEAP Equine).
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.
