About me

I am an outdoor counsellor based in Andover Hampshire, providing walking, talking therapy, as well as face to face sessions in my garden therapy room. zoom and phone sessions are also available.

Walking, talking, therapy sessions create a more relaxed feel to counselling and combine the benefits of being out in nature and counselling in one.  During our sessions, we are using both the left and right side of our brain which helps you to process the information discussed with greater ease.

I am trained in Transactional Analysis (TA), this theory looks at how we communicate with others and with ourselves. Providing the knowledge and understanding to 'look at the past, in the present for a better future'.

I am passionate about providing a tailor made counselling experience for my clients to ensure you feel heard in our sessions. 

If you would like to find out more about how I work, I provide a free 20 minute phone consultation and I welcome your call.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a foundation degree in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis. 

During my training, I worked as a volunteer counsellor for Andover Crisis Centre and remained in this post once qualified as I am aware of the importance of making counselling accessible for all. 

I have over 10 years of experience in Emergency Care and it was working in this environment that highlighted my passion for counselling and being able to connect with others in a non judgemental way. I now run Hope counselling full time since leaving the NHS. 

I also provide couples counselling having completed my couples training with Psychotherapist Jennie Miller; I work to her TA model. 

I invest in my skills with my continued professional development (CPD) and focus this around working in nature and outdoor therapy. 

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
