About me

I am an experienced UKCP registered, integrative arts psychotherapist and counsellor offering ONLINE, telephone and face to face therapy to adults and young people in Worcester, West Midlands and at the Mind Garden Therapy Centre in Reading.

Insurances Accepted:  Bupa, VitalityHealth, WPA, Aviva, AXA PPP Healthcare

Approach
There is more than one therapeutic approach I can call on. There are no hard and fast rules, and we can creatively explore the best way to work, depending on your individual needs. Talking is essential, but sometimes it is not easy exploring difficult emotions using everyday language, so I also offer you the chance to communicate using the extraordinary potential of the arts.

Experience
I have experience in both long and short-term therapy in a variety of different areas including private practice, education, the workplace, and residential mental health settings and am familiar with some of the unique challenges these environments can present.

I also keep up to date with the latest developments in therapy and counselling by engaging in ongoing reading and training and am currently studying for a Diploma in Clinical Supervision. I abide by the UKCP and BACP code of ethics and conduct.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Clinical Supervision (in training)
  • Cert in CBT
  • MA Integrative Arts in Psychotherapy, 2007
  • Post Graduate Diploma Drama Therapy, 2000

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.

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.
