About me

I am a counsellor who will provide a safe and confidential environment for you to talk about whatever is troubling you, without judgement.

​I believe that a trusting, honest, therapeutic relationship between you and your therapist, is crucial in helping you towards self-acceptance and an understanding of what is affecting you. I will do my best to help create such a relationship.

​I am based in Brentwood in Essex, I'm fully qualified and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have also completed training in online and telephone counselling.

After a career in business, I achieved a BA Hons in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy. I’ve helped my clients break through many obstacles that seemed to be holding them back and I truly believe that life's too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled.

I offer counselling grounded in the Person-Centred Approach.  Information about this approach and counselling in general can be found on the BACP's website -

https://www.bacp.co.uk/about-therapy/what-is-counselling/

All Counselling sessions are scheduled at mutually agreed times, last for 50 minutes and are priced at £50. Online sessions are via Zoom or Skype and basic technical support is available.

We will review and reassess our work together at regular intervals

​If you think that this may be helpful to you, please don't hesitate to get in contact.

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.
