About me

Are you suffering with stress, depression or anxiety? Are you unsettled since being in Lockdown? Do you have unresolved issues in your life that are holding you back? Perhaps talking to a counsellor is the move for you!

I am a humanistic Gestalt counsellor that provides a friendly and professional counselling service who is experienced in working with a range of presenting issues including, anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief and relationship difficulties. One area that I specialise in is an autism spectrum disorder and my sessions are autism friendly.

I offer short term and long term, online or telephone counselling sessions to adults of all ages within the UK. When government restrictions ease I will also offer sessions face to face at my private practice, in Fareham, Hampshire. Sessions are available Monday-Friday 9am-5pm and some evening and weekend appointments available.

It is important that we can establish a connection so you feel able to work with me to explore your concerns and therefore I spend time with you initially to develop our working relationship. Through listening to you I aim to personalise your counselling sessions to meet your individual needs. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to share and explore your concerns, using psychological education and helping you to normalise, understand and manage your experiences. The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework is followed.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree and a master's in psychology and I am a qualified Gestalt Counsellor. As a gestalt counsellor I work with you in the here and now by focusing upon the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ of your experience. I do not neglect your past or your future, but instead, ask you to consider the impact that your past or future has for you within the present.

Member organisations

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
