About me

As a Humanistic counsellor, I believe that the relationship we build will be vital to the outcome that you achieve, using strong foundations to create a safe and honest environment for exploration, change and growth. I believe that each person is an expert in their own wellbeing and our relationship will allow you to explore the choices you have for your future.

I am working face to face, online and telephone, confidentially in a non judgemental manner, giving you space to explore your situation and work towards change.  Working with people of all ages and in all walks of life, making changes that can turn your life around.  We will walk the journey together, with me supporting you throughout our sessions.

I work with clients encountering: anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, guilt, shame, grief and loss, domestic abuse (emotional, physical, financial), nightmares and terrors, fear, work stress, bullying, boarding school syndrome, family issues, self esteem, no name a few.  Each of my clients has their own unique issues to resolve, we will work to discover the full complexity of the situation to enable change.

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.

Please advise me of any accessibility issues in our first contact phone call, so I can ensure that your needs can be met.
