About me

I work both in the charitable sector and in private practice. This has given me valuable experience of working with people from all walks of life coping with a broad spectrum of issues.

I offer integrative therapy which means I can draw from different approaches in order to listen more effectively to your individual experience. My practice is non-judgemental and based upon equality. I am committed to an open dialogue with my clients where we can work together to try to find meaning and understanding in your individual experience.

Frequently asked questions:

If I start therapy do I have to commit for years?

No you don't. I offer short and long term therapy. Ultimately you decide when you would like to end therapy as part of an ongoing and open conversation.

I am not sure whether I really need therapy?

Sometimes it is worth starting therapy to understand whether you think the process will be useful to you or not. We can work together to understand this.

How will I know if you are right for me?

Book a trial appointment to see whether you feel comfortable with the therapist. Different people want different things from the process. I offer an initial consultation where we can  talk about what you feel would be useful to you. You can then consider whether you would like to begin working with me.

Will you put me under pressure to talk about things that I do not want to?

No.  My practice is based upon equality and connection. We will go at the pace that you set and that feels safe for you.  Part of the ongoing process of us developing our working alliance is  around understanding your pace.

If you have any other questions or would like to discuss making an appointment please e mail me or call me. Similarly if you have no idea what you are looking for but you know you need some support please get in touch.

Member organisations

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.

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.
