I am a professionally trained and qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and I am committed to working in your best interests. If you feel that talking to someone may help you, then contact me and we can arrange a free initial meeting. It may help you decide if counselling is appropriate for you now and importantly, if I am the right counsellor for you.
I offer daytime and evening appointments for individuals and couples. I have experience working with many issues, stress, anxiety, loss, relationships & addiction are just some of these. I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) I have also worked within the NHS and in the voluntary sector.
My counselling approach is based on Person Centered Therapy. I will listen to you without judgement, I will hear your concerns in a safe, confidential and caring environment and together we will look at how you want to move forward at a pace that feels right for you. By taking time for yourself in a counselling relationship you may find acceptance and a way forward of your choosing.
I work from premises in North Swindon which has been specifically renovated for the purpose of counselling and psychotherapy. Free parking is available; Public transport, Thamesdown Buses route 16.

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.
