About me

I’m an integrative, transpersonal therapist. I have over 30 years of supporting people who are meeting life's challenges in a variety of roles. I am warm and accepting,  often work creatively and will work with your preferences. I am LGBTQ+ friendly and a trans ally. 

If you contact me, I'll arrange a quick chat and then we can book a first session. In the first session you will be asked quite a few questions that will help me to understand your aims, needs and background and help ensure your safety.  After that, if we decide to work together it can be much freer and what we talk about or work on will be your choice.  I am based in Uxbridge (UB8) and the New Forest (SO45).

Both locations are accessible therapy rooms with accessible loos too, there is plenty of free parking in both locations. Apologies, I have no hearing loop.

I also work online via Zoom. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as an integrative trans personal psychotherapist.

I have also trained as a bereavement counsellor, and in techniques such as CBT , Brief Solution Focussed Therapy. 

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.

Both locations have level access/ramp and fully accessible loos. It is possible to park close to the entrance of both locations for free.
