About me

Whatever your troubles are, I provide a safe, confidential space where we can explore them together. I offer a free initial 30 minute consultation from which we can decide whether we want to work together. I offer appointments Monday to Thursday daytimes and evenings. Please take a look at my website to find out more.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a PG Dip in Psychotherapy and Counselling, I am an Accredited Member of United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).  I work with adults and have experience over 10 years of a wide range of issues in agencies and private practice including depression, anxiety, self-harm, bereavement, trauma, abuse and relationship difficulties. I have a special interest in antenatal and postnatal depression and birth trauma.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

Initial Contact

Please either email me from this site or from my website or you can call my mobile. If I do not answer, leave me a message and I will get back to you within 24 hours.

When we speak I will ask you what brings you to call me and if I think I can help I will offer you a free 30 minute appointment at a time that is convenient for you.

First Meeting

At that time it would help to get an outline of where you are today in relation to what has gone before. From that meeting you can decide if you would like to continue with therapy.  You may not know at that time how long you want to come for and that is fine.  You can either decide you want to come for a certain number of sessions or you may want to see how things go or you may want to commit to long term work.  Whichever you decide, sessions are usually weekly.

Parking

There is on street parking available in town and there is 3 hours free parking in Tescos which is a short walk away. Sometimes there are unrestricted slots outside the house.

Location

I am situated in central Ilminster.

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.
