About me

I offer space for people who wish to explore fundamental issues. Some are driven to counselling by a current crisis that means they need support. Others have been managing perfectly well but decide that repeating destructive patterns or underlying dissatisfaction now deserve attention.

I hold a Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Counselling from Re-Vision. This is 'counselling with a soulful perspective'. The strongest influence in the training is Jung. In this perspective, times of real difficulty or despair are seen as holding potential for change and growth.

In our work, you will be heard and witnessed. You will be able to share as much as you choose about your difficulties and the pain you may feel.

Before becoming a counsellor, I worked as a marketing consultant in professional and financial services. I’m familiar with the tension this world creates between business success and personal life.

I’m a counsellor in the student counselling service of my local university. I work both short- and long-term with students in their teens and twenties, as well as mature students. One theme I’ve noticed is that many people are still deeply affected by the divorce of their parents.

Being connected to nature is important to me. I live in the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. My consulting room is in my garden, with views over fields and woods. I can work with clients outdoors in nature.

I welcome clients of all cultures, genders and sexual orientations.

I offer a free half-hour phone or video call if you'd like to meet me and discuss the possibility of working together.

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.
