About me

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist, offering counselling, psychotherapeutic counselling, psychotherapy and meditation training in Hereford, Herefordshire and North West London. I also offer supervision

As a registered and accredited member of the UKCP, BACP and APP, I abide by the BACP and UKCP code of ethics.

Since 2007, I have worked with a range of clients in the following three areas:

  • Clients facing one off issues. This could be anything from a relationship break-down, to dealing with a problem at work, or removing a blockage to achieving a goal
  • Clients who are affected by, and wish to address, deeper issues. For example, feelings of isolation, fear of intimacy, relationship problems, unresolved family issues, anxiety and depression
  • Clients interested in personal development. For example, clients wishing to find who they really are, develop themselves and lead a more satisfying life

I also have experience of working with clients in a range of areas including relationship and family issues, becoming a mother and raising children, addictions and 12 Step programmes, eating disorders, offending, disability, financial problems, work related issues and spiritual matters.

Being passionate about my work, I continue to be amazed by what people are capable of in the right circumstances. On a cloudy day, the sun is still shinning, and so it is with you. I believe that within each of us, there is an unlimited depth of innate wholeness and wellbeing, but sometimes we get a little lost and need some help to find our way back. As an experienced guide, who has walked these paths many times, I will gladly help you find your way.

If you have any questions about how I can help, I would love to hear from you.

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.

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.

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
