About me

'The beauty of life is, while we cannot undo what is done, we can see it understand it, learn from it and change... so that every new moment is spent not in regret, guilt, fear or anger but in wisdom, understanding and love'. JE.

Most people experience times when external support becomes needed to go through difficulties or distress.

I trained with the Karuna Institute in Devon, Doing two diplomas in mindfulness in relationship before embarking on the Masters.

In Core Process Psychotherapy both therapist and client are engaged in a joint healing process. In a compassionate and emphatic field, there is a developing awareness of how our history can limit us in our daily lives and relationships and a shift from identification with conditioned self is the start of the healing journey.

As part of my training, I have volunteered on a dementia ward and an acute mental health ward. I have trained as a Cruse Bereavement Volunteer, worked for Mind in Wiltshire and as well as having a private practice am currently an associate with Taunton Counselling Services.

I have worked with people suffering from depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss. emotional, physical and psychological abuse, neglect, trauma, sexual abuse, people having relationship issues, people suffering from low self esteem and confidence.

Training, qualifications & experience

I embarked on a Masters in Core Process Psychotherapy after having been a dairy farmer for 20 years so my connection to the earth and ground is strong.

I am a member of BACP, accredited with UKCP through being a member of ACPP (Association of Core Process Psychotherapists) and abide by their codes of ethics.

I have been seeing clients for the last 6 years coming for a variety of issues, short term and long term and have quite a lot of hours under my belt.

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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

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.


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.

Key details

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.
