About me

I am a professional and compassionate counsellor and work together with clients (adults and children 11+) from all backgrounds and circumstances according to their individual needs and desires. I offer a warm and non-judgemental space to explore troubling issues, whether past, present, potential, individual, relational or spiritual.

I believe that every human contains the potential to be and do more than just merely exist or survive life’s journey. With the right help and support, difficulties and concerns can be worked through to enable you to thrive, whatever the circumstances.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I will individually tailor knowledge and tools from different types of counselling (including Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural, Psychodynamic, Solution-Focused, and Gestalt approaches, along with mindfulness techniques, and creative interventions) according to what I believe will best help you. I value your ongoing feedback in order to work with you most effectively.

I work from a town centre accessible location, with toilets and a small waiting area, and which provides a tea room Mon - Fri 9:30 - 12.30 (excluding Weds). Please ask if you require a home visit.

Member organisations

ACC

Association for Christian Counsellors

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.

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.

Wheelchair user access

There is disabled access (and toilet) from the door closest to the market (we may need to book sessions around other users to access the counselling room). Or alternatively, you can request a home visit.
