About me

Perhaps you have found your way here because you are feeling low or anxious you may have suffered a bereavement, relationship difficulties or a loss of direction in your life at these times it can be helpful to talk to a trained professional counsellor.

My counselling practice in Romsey offers a safe and confidential space where you are able to talk freely and openly about your concerns without feeling judged. As a qualified counsellor I am able to listen in a way that can help you identify and understand the source of your concerns whilst finding new ways of managing your difficulties. Understanding ourselves as well as our past experiences can feel liberating giving us the freedom to make better choices in our lives.

I have many years of experience working with adults and young people. I am a fully qualified and accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

I offer both short-term Brief Therapy and long-term Counselling. My work is tailored to your individual needs. I offer weekdays and some early evening appointments.

As a BACP Registered Accredited Counsellor, I abide by the BACP code of ethics for good practice. My accreditation is reviewed annually to ensure good ethical practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.
