About me

All sorts of things may bring a person to counselling, from acute or chronic distress to a niggling feeling that all is not well. Making the decision to see a counsellor and then finding the right person can be daunting. Therefore I set out to make this first step as easy as possible. I am happy to answer initial questions by e-mail, phone or text before we meet in person, that first face to face appointment will be a therapeutic experience and an opportunity to consider how we may work together.


About me
I am a Person-Centred counsellor, with a Post Graduate Diploma from Brighton University. This and my other qualifications and experience are listed below.

I understand from personal experience that there are times in life when it can be helpful to talk to someone other than family and friends. Someone who will give you their full attention and will truly accept and understand you. This is what I aim to do in my work as a counsellor.

I believe that it is essential for a strong, safe relationship to exist between counsellor and client for therapy to take place. Therefore in our counselling sessions I will create a warm, supportive and confidential space where you may explore any difficulties you are experiencing or issues you wish to work through.

I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy www.bacp.co.uk and abide by their code of ethics.
I have insurance, regular supervision and actively pursue further training.

Where I work
My practice is based at Intrinsic Health, a pleasant  location in the heart of Lewes (near Brighton), close to train station, bus stops and car parking. More information about the venue and can be seen on their website at www.intrinsichealthlewes.com

I am also able to see some clients in a venue in Brighton.

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.

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.
