PLEASE SEE MY WEBSITE FOR CURRENT AVAILABILITY 


I offer a safe space where you can reflect on the learnt messages you have internalised by trying to conform and please the world and others. Together, we will look at who you are and begin separating youself from what you have become. Through a neuro-affirmative and person-centred lens, I support recognising and celebrating differences while respecting the complexity of being different in a world that promotes a specific norm and the sense of elation and grief it can bring. You are the expert on yourself, but you may have lost your voice.

I am primarily trained as a Person-Centred practitioner, but I also have training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and use psychoeducation in my work, as well as Gestalt and creative methods. I adapt to what suits you and what you need. It is essential that you find a counsellor that you feel comfortable with, someone you think you can genuinely open up to, and someone who understands you. This is your time and your trust to give to someone. Initially, we will speak on the phone (if comfortable - telephone conversations are not for everyone) and see if we feel a connection before we then schedule a first meeting and start our time together.

Please refer to my website for a full list of specialist training and career experience.

I can support almost all concerns that are brought to the counselling room because counselling skills are not limited to certain subjects to achieve positive changes and understanding. Please see my website for full details.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started my counselling training in 2002 and qualified as a Person-Centred Counsellor in 2007 through the achievement of the Level 4 Diploma. Since then I have continued my studies to Masters level and have gained additional qualifications in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Gestalt therapy and Art/ Creative Therapy. All of which qualify me as a talking-focused counsellor, that can integrate different skills, including using creative methods.

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)

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.

The room at Roy Fletcher Centre is on the first floor but has a lift to access all floors. The room at Swan Hill Therapy Hub is up two flights of stairs and is NOT wheelchair accessible.
