About me

I am an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor offering individual, 50 minute therapy sessions for adults and adolescents (age 11+) tailored to the needs of each client in a compassionate and sensitive way. The sessions are confidential and a safe space to share openly and explore feelings, difficult issues, reflect and gain a better understanding of the self and emotional well-being that can help to inform change and improve self-worth and self-esteem. I work in a non-judgmental and respectful manner and the relationship that develops between us is essential throughout the work.

I offer weekly or fortnightly face-to-face sessions at the Health At Hart Clinic in Hartley Wintney (Hampshire); Wokingham Therapy Clinic (Berkshire) or online using Zoom or on the telephone.

Counselling may help to achieve a more authentic way of being, as I believe if we can make sense of and understand how our past affects our present feelings and behaviours it may be possible to make changes to the way we live our lives and relate to others in the present.

Counselling may not be an easy process, sharing emotional and difficult situations and feelings can be daunting as well as finding ways to change which may bring mixed feelings, but with my support along the way, we will endeavour to find the way forward that is right for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

- Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling

I am an Accredited Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I am fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

My training is integrative drawing on various theoretical perspectives, integrating knowledge and skills from Person-centred, Existential, Gestalt and Psychodynamic theories.  Working with the here and now and reflecting on difficult issues and experiences from the past, I believe can lead to self-awareness and an understanding of learnt behaviour which can lead to change.

I have experience working professionally and empathetically with bereavement, loss, trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression, anger, self-harm, relationships issues, sex, sexuality, self-esteem, confidence and personal development, work issues, health and the emotional impact of this either in open-ended or short-term counselling.

I maintain regular and ongoing professional development (CPD) and supervision in accordance with BACP Ethical Framework and regulations.

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.

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.
