About me

Individual Counselling

My down to earth therapeutic approach:

Wholeheartedly supports you in facing your life's struggles
Provides emotional support through tough times
Encourages emotional expression
Affirms your strengths
Respects your vulnerabilities  
Compassionately challenges self-limiting beliefs and behaviour
Encourages you to be kind to yourself
Creates room for seeing things differently
Helps you to discover unexpected resources
Offers new psychological tools
Gives you the opportunity to respond freshly to your challenges.

Some issues people have brought to me:

Relationship difficulties
Parenting difficulties
Unresolved childhood issues, historical abuse and neglect
Low self-esteem and loss of confidence
Harsh self-criticism
Overwhelm and lack of support
Transition, bereavement and loss
Lack of meaning or purpose in life
Abusive or bullying relationships
Infidelity
Depression and anxiety

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.

As a qualified supervisor (working privately and in the past for the Dartmoor Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy) I offer input that values and nourishes your professional competence, confidence and integrity, as well as raising issues and checking out potential blind spots.
