About me

I work relationally, offering a confidential, safe, non-judgemental space to explore difficult feelings and understand underlying patterns in relationships.

I offer regular weekly sessions, working with individuals or couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. We focus on the here and now (what’s happening from moment to moment), working in collaboration, at your pace, and where your interest lies. This can help you to see more clearly what your situation is, how you are a part of it, and find new ways to face the difficulty.

Coming to therapy can be the first step towards change and growth. It can help you to get to know yourself better, what your needs are and how you can have your own and others’ met with more clarity and compassion.

Therapy is a safe and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours with an empathetic, non-judgmental qualified therapist. Over time therapy can help you see your life from a different perspective, identify changes that could be made, and help you to accept and move on from certain situations or emotional states. Paying attention to the therapy relationship dynamics, through empathic attunement, understanding, meaning-making and co-learning, we can work together towards greater self-understanding, self-acceptance and the freedom to choose the way you want to live your life.

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 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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

Getting in touch

If you would like to give it a try please call me on 07402 078 852 or get in touch by email and we can arrange a time to have a chat on the phone so I can answer any other questions you may have and arrange a session.

The initial assessment session will be a bit different to other sessions, allowing us to meet and get to know each other, work through any questions you may have and also discuss your expectations. During the session, I will also ask you about what has brought you to therapy and some other questions to help me identify the most appropriate way for us to work together. Hopefully, by the end of the session, you will have a good sense of if counselling is for you and if you would like to proceed.

Accessibility

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.
