About me

Through a therapeutic relationship, we have space to safely explore our own nature, how we interact with others and how we inhabit and experience our lives.

Having someone witness our process who can sensitively reflect unconscious behaviour, may show struggle in a different light. This can create a valuable shift in perspective and allow opportunity for growth.

During times of challenge and change our pre-existing beliefs and feelings may come into question. This can show up through bodily experiences, emotions, thoughts, intuition and so on.

As a counsellor with 12 years of experience, I work within the person-centred framework and, where appropriate, draw on the creativity of Gestalt based interventions which ask us to look behind the conscious and less-conscious choices we make each day.

Each client has specific needs and requirements from counselling which I strive to meet.

I also offer therapy outdoors, where we encounter the natural world with ourselves as elements of the whole.

I attend regular supervision and update my practice often by attending training, workshops and an ongoing therapy group. I abide by the BACP's code of ethics.

Please feel free to call or email me for a chat if you would like further information or to get a feel for the way we could work together.

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.

Wheelchair user access

At present where I work is not suitable for wheelchair access however alternative arrangements can be made.
