About me

I have experience of working with clients who are struggling with addiction, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, exploring spirituality and relationship problems. I am able to work therapeutically with individual adults and young people age 13+.

Sessions available online and face to face.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and work from a comfortable room in my home in Staines. I use a broadly person-centred approach to counselling and believe the trusting relationship built between myself and my client is key to enabling them to explore troubling issues.

I offer an initial 50 minute appointment for you to decide if I am the right counsellor for you. Future sessions would be for 50 mins and generally at the same time each week/fortnight.

My location is easily accessible from Staines train station, the 458 bus route and there's plenty of parking available if you drive.

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.

ACC

Association for Christian Counsellors (ACC)

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.
