Welcome, how can I help? Maybe it’s a need to share a trouble or worry from daily life, deal with stress, anxiety, trauma or even consider anger management for example. Maybe it’s a case of just making sense of who you are or what you need from a deeper place within your being.
I offer a calm, safe and confidential space to explore and unfold your life experiences and relationships, seeing you as a unique individual with meaning, purpose and potential. We can explore the possibilities, goals and aspirations as well as everyday struggles, blocks, defences and difficult feelings and emotions which, may be part of you.
Often counselling and therapy is sought at a crisis point in life or when times present themselves as confused uncertain or just difficult. I would be happy to have a conversation with you to initially explore whether we could work together and if I can offer the support and help your looking for. This might be on a short or longer term basis.
I currently work with individual people, aged 16+, either by telephone, remote video platforms such as “Zoom” and face to face (subject to Covid-19 government and BACP guidelines), or a combination of depending upon need. I also offer walk and talk therapy starting at my home location.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified integrative counsellor and therapist registered as a full member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), having trained at the Psychosynthesis Trust in London and undertaken further study with Babette Rothchild, an author, teacher and trainer specialising in the field of trauma and PTSD since the early 1990's.
I am in my third year of private practice, working from Chilton in South Oxon (Near Didcot) and from the market town of Wantage. I am also part of the counselling diploma training team at the Wantage Counselling and Training Centre, Orchard House, Wantage.
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.
