About me

Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, low motivation - I will work with you to sort through these negative feelings that can hold you back and cause confusion and distress.

I practice in Biggleswade and Cambridge, creating a safe space in which you can reflect on your life experiences, current problems and challenges, and work towards positive changes.

About the counselling I offer

Person-centred therapy focuses on the client as the expert, with the counsellor taking a non-directive approach and providing a safe environment to fully explore all aspects of the self without fear of judgement. Existential therapy is concerned with searching for meaning, recognising where meaning is found, and taking control over the choices in everyday life that contribute to living in a meaningful way. Working across these two types of therapy, I will support and encourage you to work towards an understanding and acceptance of yourself, and a realisation of the power and control you have to make changes and achieve your full potential.

Cognitive Behavioural techniques are methods of recognising where thought patterns can lead to destructive behaviour and challenging the beliefs that perpetuate the behaviour. I find that combining Cognitive Behavioural methods with an exploration of the self that comes with the Person-Centred/Existential model, a deeper understanding of issues can be gained whilst maintaining a focus on simply feeling better and more able to function day-to-day.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling, and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

I have experience of counselling within a university health department and an NHS GP surgery, working with a range of issues including bereavement, anxiety, depression, relationship breakdowns and anger management.

Member organisations

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.
