About me

Any kind of relationship problem can leave us feeling miserable and anxious. I will work with you on any emotional difficulty that you are experiencing, either as a couple or individually, in a relationship or single.

I also specialise in working with loss. This can cover so many issues including bereavement, loss of a relationship, job and health amongst others.


I will work at a pace that is right for you which also means that I can work short term or for longer.    

My interest in emotional well being began over 30 years ago when working with Local Authority Mental Health Trusts. I saw first hand how we can experience difficulties in our family, friendship and work relationships as well as our intimate relationships. This can be something new and unexpected or it can seem like we are repeating patterns. Sometimes we may not know what it is ourselves, and feel confused and anxious about wanting things to be different but not knowing what to do to make the changes. Counselling can help to de-clutter some of the thoughts that can feel overwhelming and confusing. Having more of an understanding of why we think and react the way that we do can help us to make those changes and give us choices.

I will respond respectfully to your agenda and will not judge you for the difficulties that you are experiencing.

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.

Fees

I charge between £50 and £60 per session depending on whether I am working with you indivividually or as a couple.

I ask for 48 hours notice if a session is to be cancelled and request a flat fee of £20 for any appointments not cancelled within this period. This helps me to recover some of the the costs that I will incur, including the cost of the room which I have hired specifically for our session. For any appointments cancelled on the day I ask for the fee to be paid in full. Please do let me know if this is going to cause you any difficulty and of course I do appreciate that emergencies crop up that are beyond our control. Many Thanks

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.
