Hello, and thank you for considering me as your counsellor.
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and registered member of the BACP working in Wiltshire. I meet clients in comfortable rooms in the centre of Salisbury. Residents of Wiltshire can also request sessions online using Zoom.
How might I help?
Perhaps you are feeling down, confused, stuck or dissatisfied. Anxious or uncertain about your life or your relationships. Perhaps you’re seeking support after a bereavement or difficult life event, or perhaps you’re feeling a desire to know yourself better.
I can offer a down-to-earth, open-hearted and empathetic ear to whatever you bring, and a dedicated safe space for you to explore your experiences, reactions and emotions. I strive to be a fellow traveller as my clients explore themselves, perhaps meet themselves fully, without judgement or preconceptions.
My training and ways of working
I’m trained in integrative humanistic counselling, which means that I have a grounding in a range of therapeutic and psychological theories which I can bring into our work, with the goal of helping you and meeting your therapeutic needs.
Person-centred, existential and relational approaches are at the core of my way of being with clients. This means our time together is your time, what happens in the therapy will grow out of what you bring, and what is happening in the present moment of our meeting. Fundamentally I’m steered by the belief that we all have what we need inside ourselves to thrive, given the right conditions. In our time together we can seek to find some of those conditions.
Life can be complicated, and humans are complicated too. Perhaps through talking therapy, we can untangle some of that complexity, find some clarity, self-knowledge and self-compassion to make our own experience of life more manageable, more fruitful.
Training, qualifications & experience
- CPCAB Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
- CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
- Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
I participate in an ongoing programme of Continuing Professional Development and am supported in my work by qualified professional supervision.
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
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.
