About me

We come to crossroads in life that we never thought we’d ever be at. They can be painful and confusing, while, at the same time, reducing our confidence to deal with the fall out. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space where feelings and situations can be explored.

About me

I have been involved with counselling and psychotherapy for over thirty years. I have worked with Relate and in Higher Education, the latter having a high proportion of mature students is a reflection of the problems found in society at large. I have a small number of private clients and I offer short and longer term counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples. Therapy can be weekly or fortnightly.

Counselling/Psychotherapy

Very often in life people find themselves in a place of real frustration and distress, because they cannot always understand their emotions and reactions. Talking about problems externalizes them, they are shared and this gives us the opportunity to look at areas that can be frightening and uncomfortable, so that greater understanding can be achieved.

Therapy is not a magic solution, however, a trusting relationship with the therapist can allow issues to be explored, and we have the chance to get to know ourselves better, so that our options are informed choices.

I consider myself to be a down to earth and practical person. I work intuitively and I realise how difficult it is to uncover areas in our lives that are causing us pain.

Good therapy has clear boundaries, it is jargon free and respectful to the individual client who is always in control, however, it demands commitment from both client and therapist so that trust can evolve and a productive relationship can ensue. 

Supervision

I have provided clinical supervision to counsellors for over twenty years. I see supervision as a collaborative process, where hopefully there is sufficient trust, between the individuals involved, to allow for creative play with the clinical material.

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.

Accredited register membership

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.
