About me

Please note that for the time being I am offering counselling online (via video call) and outdoors only, owing to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, i.e. the risk of transmission and the practical and legal issues around workplace Covid security in the context of face-to-face counselling. I hope to be able to return to indoor face-to-face work at some point. If you would like to get in touch to discuss online or outdoor counselling with me, to help decide whether one or the other (or a combination of both) might work for you, we can do this by email or phone - see my Contact page. With apologies, I am not able to work with young people (i.e. 18 or younger) online. Thank you for your understanding.

I am a trained and experienced therapeutic counsellor, offering individual counselling to adults and young people, short- or long-term. I am based in Glastonbury, Somerset, and am currently offering counselling either via online video call or in person outdoors, according to your preference.

A resume of my background and qualifications are below. I have helped clients of all ages (14 and upwards) with a wide variety of issues, since qualifying in 2015. My approach is at root person-centred, but I will adapt to your needs, using aspects of other approaches where it is helpful.

I strongly believe in the therapeutic benefit of working outdoors, and I offer this alternative if it appeals to you. We can either discuss it at the start, or else consider it later on, as you wish. I can also offer nature therapy or nature reconnection work if this is what you want. Please see the Green Therapy page of my website.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in Person-Centred Counselling in 2012-2015, completing an additional Integrative diploma in 2016. During and since my training, I have worked with adults of all ages, for two counselling services in Somerset, and with young people aged 14 plus in a school setting in Norfolk.

I have also trained in eco-therapy/eco-psychology, with Sweet Track in Somerset, developing my interest in combining talking therapy with outdoor and nature-based approaches to therapy.

My formal qualifications are:

BA Hons, Oxford; 1991
PGCE, Lancaster; 1994
PhD, Sheffield, 2006
​Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills (CPCAB); 2013
Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies (CPCAB); 2013
Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (CPCAB); 2015
Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (CPCAB); 2016
BACP Certificate of Proficiency; 2016

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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).

Additional information

My rate is £35 for 60 minutes. I might be able to offer you a lower rate, according to your circumstances. It is worth asking me about this, but I cannot promise that it will be possible.

I offer an initial meeting (aka assessment session) of up to 60 mins for £20.

Under the current, unusual circumstances, I am also offering a preliminary meeting/chat online (or by phone if you prefer) for free, to establish that we are able to connect, technically speaking, and to answer any general questions. This would be prior to a more formal and focused assessment session online.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

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.
