Despite working relaxations, I am continuing to offer on-line counselling. This can provide a very effective and flexible way of working and hopefully will not prevent you from reaching out. I am here to help.
I am a registered counsellor and member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) based in Salisbury. I offer both video and telephone and counselling for adults and young people (16+).
At times life can be complex and present many challenges, none more so than in the current situation. We have to face fear, deal with crisis and difficult issues. When our normal coping mechanisms are not enough and we are struggling to see a way forward, this is when we can seek additional support. Counselling is often the next step. It can help you to come to terms with any of life's events and the associated emotional pain and distress that accompany this.
I provide a safe, confidential space, where I help my clients explore some of their presenting issues in a nurturing and supportive way. With an empathic and non-judgemental approach, I aim to build a trusting relationship with every client I work with.
By gaining a shared understanding of your experiences, we will work together to help provide a platform for healing, in finding solutions and creating a more peaceful and fulfilling life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained to become a counsellor as I understood how much I appreciate learning about and listening to the unique life stories of each individual. To be able to sit with clients and work collaboratively to help initiate change is often a humbling experience and I feel privileged to be in this position. I have had experience of working with clients with a wide variety of life issues and will always assess whether I have the experience and expertise to provide the best for each individual. I have worked as a counsellor at Southampton University providing counselling for students with a strong focus on stress and anxiety within an academic setting.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
