About me

You may be feeling anxious about reaching out to someone with your concerns and challenges. Life can be complicated sometimes and seem difficult to navigate. We all have challenges that we may be facing now, or have faced in the past and there is great value in not having to face those challenges alone. Maybe you are dealing with anxiety, burnout, divorce, loss, disordered eating, the effects of abuse or childhood trauma. I aim to provide a warm, welcoming and safe environment for you to talk about these issues.

As an integrative counsellor I have a variety of methods to suit my clients’ needs and preferences, and I am able to come alongside you and form an alliance that makes it possible to explore thoughts, feelings and difficulties. I also offer an outdoor therapy service alongside the Hogsmill River in Ewell, Epsom, or Ruislip Lido or Rickmansworth Aquadrome.

Counselling can be a challenging process in itself and it takes courage to trust another person with your inner world. But ultimately it can be very rewarding and liberating; providing insight into behaviour, removing the blockages to change and promoting healing.

It can be difficult to make that initial contact and I am well aware of that so my aim is to make the process as easy as possible for you. If you email me we can arrange a phone call to talk about what you want to get out of counselling, I will explain how it works and you can ask any questions you may have. Alternatively you can book a no obligation, initial counselling session to see if we are a good fit. My normal fee applies for this.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

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.

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.
