About me

I appreciate that finding someone to share your thoughts and emotions with can be a daunting task. I understand the importance of feeling heard and valued. I believe that the most effective solutions for those in distress are achieved when you feel safe, supported and trusted. 

My part in your journey would be to offer a space in which I will help you manage your anxiety. Together we can explore why you might be experiencing uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, develop an understanding of yourself, and gain new skills that will lead you toward a less conflicting, more settled future.  

To give you an opportunity to see if you we might work well together, I offer a free initial forty minute session either in person in Exeter, or in Chard, Somerset, or online via zoom. Please email or text me to set up an appointment as I am not always able to pick up the phone.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
