About me

I'm sorry you're having a difficult time. You are not alone and I would like to help you. I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor. This means that I draw upon a variety of psychological therapies to best assist the individuals I work with. Whether you're struggling with emotional experiences, feeling stuck or going through a period of change, therapy with me will give you an opportunity to share your troubles without judgement or criticism. I have worked with a broad range of people with diverse issues and have had many years experience in a wide variety of areas that affect the human condition.

Counselling will provide you with a safe, completely confidential, non-judgemental relationship that will enable you to explore and work through your difficulties and issues.

I work within the ethical framework of the BACP and abide by the guidelines of this professional body in terms of ethical conduct. I have regular clinical supervision and engage in a wide range of continued professional development.

I am available in Taunton Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings. Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Please call now for a confidential initial discussion.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

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.
