About me

Hello and thank you for viewing my profile.

I am a qualified person-centred therapist and a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).  I am Integrative in Practice,

I offer therapeutic counselling sessions for adults, children and young people, in a confidential and non-judgemental environment in Dovercourt and Frinton-on-Sea.

I am able to offer short focused or longer term counselling, depending on what your needs are. All of this will be discussed in our first appointment and where you can make the decision if I am the right counsellor for you to work with.

I also offer Couples counselling where my aim is to offer a safe and confidential space for you and your partner.  Through our sessions I will facilitate an environment where you can both explore and progress in your relationship.  Often people see couples counselling as a last resort and you may be experiencing long-term difficulties.  I can offer support to couples in clarifying a way forward in their relationship or support to those who wish to separate.


In my work as an Integrative Therapist I use a non-directive approach, holding the belief that you are the expert on yourself.

Life can feel over whelming at times and counselling can provide a confidential space in which to clarify our feelings and gain insights into who we are and what we want from life. Through counselling I believe individuals can be supported towards a deeper awareness of self.

I work with clients to explore personal concerns, finding ways to resolve or manage them, in an open, non-judgmental manner, whether the issues are current or throughout your life including childhood.

Counselling does not involve giving advice or directing you to a particular course of action.  It aims to provide an environment where you can find these answers for yourself and draw on the internal resources you already have.  People seek counselling for many different reasons and making that decision to seek counselling is a brave step. 

Choosing a counsellor is a very personal matter, so if you would like to contact me for further information and to see if I am the right counsellor for you, then please do. 

Please note: During sessions my phone is not manned, but please leave a voicemail and I will call you back.

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.
