During the pandemic, I have been seeing clients on-line or over the telephone. This has certainly proven to be a successful media for therapy for these uncertain times and going forward for those who live at a distance or with limited accessibility.
I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist and my experience covers a wide range of conditions including Depression, anxiety, bereavement, eating disorders, sexual and emotional abuse and suicidal thoughts and life crisis.
As a trained bereavement volunteer at Cruse Bereavement Care, I can offer support with bereavement where feelings of loneliness, isolation, anger, guilt or even relief all of which often come hand in hand with a deep sense of loss and can affect your wellbeing and ability to cope. Exploring these strong emotions can help make sense of your loss and help alleviate the pain you’re experiencing. Sometimes just saying it out loud can be very powerful!
My training is Integrative counselling combining Person Centred and Psychodynamic approaches. As well as private practice, I work for The Well Counselling charity in Malvern.
I see therapy as very much a team effort, working together in a confidential, safe environment to gently explore difficult feelings and experiences in a way that will help enhance your sense of wellbeing and bring about positive changes in your life. We will work at your own pace and to your agenda.
I can’t claim to have a 'magic wand' but I strongly believe in my clients and the difference that therapy can make.

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).
