About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor based on a small farm which offers a unique therapeutic experience in a warm, calm and inviting setting. This space and the therapeutic relationship we establish provides an environment in which you can safely talk, explore and work therapeutically through your problems and life experiences in order to help you achieve a sense of peace and wellbeing.

Along side traditional talking therapy I offer the opportunity to work creatively if you wish using sand, art and Eco therapy to support our work.

I also offer Equine facilitated learning/therapy and Animal Assisted Therapy. In which we work therapeutically with our horses and other animals as part of our work together should you wish or as a targeted piece of work to help with a certain issue or difficulty.

Please contact me for more information either via the email link, text or phone. Please leave me a message if I don't answer I will return your call as soon as I can.

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.
