About me

Whatever your situation is, I can offer you an empathetic ear and a non-judgmental space to explore anything that’s on your mind. It can be long term problems that have been there all your life, a current crisis or even a feeling that you want to change something but you're not sure what.  Whatever you want to bring to sessions will be handled in a confidential, non-judgemental way and I aim to provide a safe and calm space in which you can understand your feelings and find a way forward.

I can work with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, and self-esteem. I have also worked in care off and on since 2012, and I can use experience gained working in the care profession to help you talk through any issues involving care and support, including end of life and dementia.

Following initial contact from you, we can arrange an assessment over the telephone which will take about 20 minutes and is free of charge. We can also do this via video calling too. This will give me an idea of what you need help with and allow you to see if I am the right counsellor for you.

Following this, we can begin sessions to explore your issue in more detail to develop an understanding of how it started and the impact it has had, or is still having, on your life. If you want to, we can agree a set number of sessions, or you can leave it open ended to finish when you feel the time is right.

I trained as a humanistic integrative counsellor, an approach which recognises that there are significant connections between all approaches to counselling. It accepts that different clients have diverse needs and believes that no single method is sufficient. The approaches that I draw on are Person-centred therapy, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis, and I am also trained in CBT.

I am qualified to work with adults, children, and adolescents.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I work to their guidelines and code of ethics.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Living with and caring for someone with dementia.

End of life.

Single Session Therapy - this is a single session of therapy that focuses on a specific issue. This way of working is not suitable for all issues, especially where trauma is involved. Having one session does not mean that you cannot have further sessions if the need arises, and sometimes a single session can be used to explore whether longer term therapy is needed.

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.

Wheelchair accessibility is available in the Neetside Community Centre, Bude, but not in Bideford.
