About me

At this particularly challenging time, we are likely to experience increased levels of anxiety and find ourselves facing situations or challenges which we can find distressing and difficult to cope with. Having a safe, confidential space to feel heard and explore what is going on can be extremely beneficial.

I believe that for those needing help, counselling is an essential need and will therefore be keeping my practice open. I am taking all precautions possible to prevent any transmission of the virus.  Should  any existing or prospective client prefer to have a consultation via Skype, Facetime or simply by telephone, then I am happy to do that also. Please just let me know what is best for you.

I have 12 years of experience of working with a broad range of issues for individuals, including: relationships, depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, redundancy, anger management and self esteem. More specifically, covering areas such as OCD, eating disorders, physical, psychological and sexual abuse, bereavement and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor registered by the British Association for Counselling (BACP). My training in a range of therapeutic techniques enable me to tailor my approach for each person.  In addition to my private practice I also work as a counsellor in occupational health and with GP referrals.

My counselling practice is located in a quiet private setting in Camberley, and is easily accessible for the surrounding areas of Frimley, Bagshot, Lightwater, West End, Windlesham, Chobham, Deepcut, Frimley Green, Farnborough, Ascot, Sunninghill and Sunningdale.

Member organisations

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.
