About me

About you:

Perhaps you are living with a partner who has difficulties relating to you; perhaps you don't feel heard, 'seen' or understood.

Perhaps you are living with long Covid/Chronic Fatigue/M.E., or your partner is.

Perhaps you feel isolated, lonely, angry, low self esteem, lacking in confidence.

Perhaps you are troubled as a result of life-events such as general relationship difficulties or disappointments, a bereavement, post-natal depression, children leaving home, divorce, work or health problems, terminal illness, or dying. You might have difficult decisions to make or just feel generally dissatisfied and restless. Sometimes the stresses and strains of life simply become too much. You might just feel that life isn’t all that you'd like it to be.

Perhaps, up until now, you have always managed to ‘get through’ on your own or with the support of close family or friends. But this time, even that doesn’t seem to be helping. You are beginning to think that the time has come to get support from someone who is professionally trained and who will try to understand what it might be like for you.

Please note I do not work with couples; only individuals.

About me:

I grew up in the Netherlands and New Zealand, and also lived in France for two years before settling in England in the mid 1980's.

My professional background is in Nursing and I came to Counselling when I realised that the part I loved best was to sit with people and accompany them on their emotional and psychological journeys.

I have many years of experience counselling within counselling organisations as well as tutoring on counselling courses. Also, for over a decade, I have been counselling within my own private practice.

I enjoy working with adults of all ages and I have over 25 years' experience working with Chronic Fatigue/M.E, and now also long Covid.

I also have many years' experience working with the partners of people who have an autism spectrum/neuro-diversity diagnosis.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).
