About me

I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor offering one-to-one sessions for children, young people and adults. I work face-to-face in Marlborough and I also provide online and telephone support. I offer short or longer term counselling.

There are many different reasons that may lead you to look for a counsellor for you or your child and I understand that taking the first steps in seeking help can sometimes feel daunting. You may be struggling with anxiety, family issues or be experiencing sad or depressed feelings. You may have feelings of anger, loss, frustration or be fed up with current issues linked to Covid-19. You may just have a feeling that something is not quite right. I am here to offer confidential, non-judgemental counselling where you can be heard and understood. Talking about, and exploring your emotions and feelings can help you come to your own conclusions and empower you to take your next steps in life.

My aim is to work alongside you, giving you the space and time to explore any issues, emotions or thoughts that might be troubling you. Person-centred counselling works from the belief that everyone has at their core, the capacity to grow, improve and change.

Please don't hesitate to contact me to arrange a free initial consultation to find out if counselling can help you.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

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.
