About me

I am an experienced counsellor / psychotherapist offering Walking Therapy on the beautiful Chesham Moor in Chesham Buckinghamshire as well as online therapy. 

Walking Therapy sessions in an outdoor environment combine the beneficial nature of physical movement, respectful dialogue and a non-judgmental relationship to empower clients awareness. 

Move forward to connect with yourself through nature and gain better understanding of your relationships. Free yourself from unhealthy patterns, release stress, build confidence and self-esteem as we walk, talk and work together in the open.

As life presents us with challenges it can be easy to become stuck in certain habits, destructive patterns of thinking and sustain unrealistic expectations of ourselves and others. The supported inquiry offered by walking and talking encourages insight, perspective and the space for growth towards sustainable change.

 Local areas Amersham, Gerrards Cross, The Chalfonts, Berkhamsted, Tring and surrounding areas. 

I offer flexible appointment times for both Walking and Online sessions.

Fees are £60 for a full hour

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.
