About me

Hello - well done for starting the process of looking for support in your life. It takes courage to consider embracing change and to attend counselling.

I am a Qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and hold a First Class Psychology Degree, experienced in seeing Adults and Young people in Reading, Berkshire.

I integrate Person-Centred and Psychodynamic counselling styles which allows me to be flexible to your individual needs.

What to expect

  • I am mindful of providing an environment that can help you to feel safe to speak with me.
  • I offer effective counselling skills, while being consistent in conveying my genuine self in our time together.
  • I offer warmth and complete respect in consideration of your experiences.
  • We can work in a very present way, together we can notice your ways of being and help to process your thoughts and feelings.
  • I can support you to gain greater conscious awareness of patterns in your life that may be influencing the way you relate to yourself and others.
  • Through counselling we can facilitate healing from the past and a reconnection to your true, authentic self.

Talking confidentially with a trained counsellor about your experience can be useful. It is your choice to what extent you would like to talk. Other modalities such as Mindfulness can be incorporated. As well as Art & Play Therapy- Especially useful for Young People.

Please get in touch for a free confidential chat about what I offer.

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.
