About me


I offer one to one therapeutic counselling in confidence and in a safe space. The shape this takes will be led by what you want to talk about. It is a collaborative and cooperative process. The work happens in what arises and how we unfold this, together.

Understanding everyday experiences is central to this work. Life has many joys, mysteries, boring bits and dilemmas. Much of this is to be celebrated but we can take a closer look at the things that have become more difficult or just don’t suit you anymore. We can work on how a more fulfilled life can be lived.

This can involve exploring your views and responses to situations, your choices and possibilities for the future. I believe this will place you in a much better position to have an understanding of your everyday life and grow in a way that suits you.

How we responded to past events have a habit of affecting how we understand our present experiences and how we see the future. While it is important to understand past events, I believe in being in the ‘here and now’. This means not being a prisoner to the past and being able to respond differently; understand who you are differently as you look towards the future and to greater wellbeing.

The length of time we work together can be short or long term and can be reviewed as the work progresses.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MA in psychotherapy and counselling and ten years’ experience of working therapeutically and in confidence with individuals.

I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. As such I respect and abide by their codes of ethics.

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.

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.
