Hello and welcome.
I'm a qualified and experienced Humanistic Counsellor trained in Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Person-Centred modalities and I work in an integrative way to tailor these different approaches to your needs.
Humanistic therapy focuses on you as a 'whole'. It encourages you to think about your feelings and take responsibility for your thoughts and actions. The emphasis is on self-development, growth and achieving your highest potential
I can help you if you are experiencing issues that are causing you distress. Many of us will feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or ‘stuck’ and it takes courage to ask for help, but you don’t have to struggle to work things out on your own.
Finding someone to talk to, when you feel this way, is a sign of strength and regardless of what has brought you to this point, it’s about where you go from here that matters.
I offer a safe, compassionate and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours without judgement. As we build a trusting and collaborative relationship we can work together to make sense of what you’re thinking and feeling. I can offer insight, support, and strategies to help you move forward.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work in accordance with their ethical framework and standards. I have regular supervision sessions and undertake training courses and workshops for my continuing professional development.
I hold personal indemnity and public liability insurance which covers working face to face, online and by telephone.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
From £50.00 to £60.00
Free initial telephone or online session
The quality of the relationship between a client and counsellor is crucial for therapy to be effective and successful. Our relationship will be an important part of your journey, so I offer a free half-hour telephone or Zoom consultation for us to get to know each other.
The session offers you the opportunity to ask questions and decide if I am the ‘right fit’ for you, without any obligation and I can be confident that I’m well placed to support you and help you grow. Please email me to arrange this.
Following this, we can schedule a 75-minute initial assessment session charged at £60. Subsequent sessions are 50 minutes and are charged at £50.
Fees are payable in advance of each session, by bank transfer. Cancellations, with no charge, require 48 hours’ notice.
When I work
I work from a therapy room located at Kingsclere Counselling Service, which is based on a farm, on the main road between Basingstoke and Newbury. It is approximately a 10-minute journey from Basingstoke town centre. There is parking available and it is on a bus route.
In addition to providing face-to-face therapy, I also offer online sessions and telephone sessions for clients in the Hampshire area and beyond via Zoom or Skype.
