About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor and qualified in 2004. I also hold an MSc in Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy Studies, plus a Diploma in Integrative Counselling Supervision.

I have experience of working within the Prison System as a Counsellor for 12 years, with adults who were experiencing difficulties around childhood abuse, trauma/ptsd, addiction, self harm, grief and loss, depression and anxiety, personality disorders and autism etc. I also have worked with organisations that support adults who are experiencing Domestic Abuse and Eating Disorders.

Currently I do alot of work with counselling students and teach on level 3 and level 4 courses.

My private practice has been running since 2004 which is in Kings Hill. I provide short or long term therapy for adults and couples, and can offer a sliding fee scale.

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.
