About me

Life can feel difficult, and we might not even know why. It can be helpful to work through our feelings in a safe, confidential, and supportive therapeutic relationship. I believe the answers are in us as individuals, and that we also benefit from being alongside someone as we explore our thoughts and feelings, and get a deeper understanding of ourselves.

As a fully qualified integrative counsellor and BACP Registered member, and an HR professional with over 15 years experience in multinational companies, I am passionate about personal growth and development. Talking to someone we feel comfortable with, and who does not judge us, can help.

So whether you are looking to explore current life circumstances, grow your understanding of how the past affects you today, or face concerns about the future, I can support you on your journey.

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.

Fees

My fee is £45 for each 50 minute session.

I offer an initial 15 minute phone consultation free of charge. In this no obligation discussion you can share what you’d like to get from therapy, ask questions, and get a sense of what it’s like talking to me. After this, if you decide I’m the right therapist for you, you can book an appointment in your own time.

Send me a message to arrange a phone consultation.

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.
