About me

Hi, I'm Hatty.  I am a fully BACP Accredited Integrative counsellor and I work in both Berkeley and Thornbury, which are easily accessible from Bristol and Gloucester respectively.

I have over 10 years of experience as a therapist working with adults, children and young people and offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space in which to explore life's challenges.

I have trained in a variety of modalities, including Person-Centred, Solution Focused, and CBT.  This means I can tailor my approach to meet your needs; offering not only a warm, trusting therapeutic relationship but also a more structured and dynamic therapy to achieve real change.

I have experience working with many different issues, including loss and bereavement, relationship difficulties, abuse, stress, depression, OCD, anxiety disorders, PTSD and phobias.

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.


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.

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.
