About me

I believe that counselling heals through a safe relationship where you can discuss and explore your emotions and issues. I recognise the courage it takes to make that first contact, and while I will support you to find a way through your current distress I won’t tell you what you should do, or tie you into a lengthy contract.

Every client is a unique individual and I value and respect you for who you are. I won’t judge you.

"the curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am then I can change"

Carl Rogers

"Its the relationship that heals"  Irvin Yalom

My qualification is an FdA in Therapeutic Counselling.
I have worked for Listening Post a Gloucestershire based charity since 2011 providing counselling support to adults. I am currently their Clinical Manager. I also work for ARA, Addiction Recovery Agency who support clients who either have problems with gambling or are affected by someone who does.
I have worked with a wide range of client issues including, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, relationship problems, abuse, domestic violence, gender and sexuality issues, depression, stress, shame, loss and grief, as well as personal development issues of confidence and self acceptance.
Working in a relational way I aim to help you to find acceptance in yourself as well as find your way forward.

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.

Accessibility

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.
