About me

I am a fully qualified therapeutic counsellor with a diploma in humanistic therapeutic counselling and am a member of the professional register of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, abiding by their code of ethical conduct.

I work with those suffering anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse survivors, relationship difficulties, addictive behaviours, general unhappiness and those seeking self awareness.  My approach is to help you identify and work with the root cause of suffering rather than papering over the cracks.

Counselling is not a question of me telling you what to do or how to be, you know yourself better than anyone else does, and your inner self knows what it needs to do to, even if you are not aware of that right now. I will accompany and support you using my skills and abilities to empower you to access your own source of inner strength and well being.

I provide a safe, confidential space where you will not be judged, where together we can get to the bottom of what's bothering you and help you move forward.

I have a background in bodywork, I was a Shiatsu practitioner(Japanese Acupressure) for many years, and practice mindfulness meditation.  I integrate my experience of holistic body/mind awareness into my therapeutic work.

Fee

My fee for counselling is £45 per hour.

Therapeutic counselling works best when meetings are regular, usually weekly, and can be short term (6 - 10 weeks) or longer term depending on your needs. If you have a particular issue that you wish to work on in a focused way then short term counselling would be appropriate. For deep seated, or multiple issues or for developing self awareness, more time would be helpful.

  • I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation giving you the opportunity to find out a little bit more about my practice and to to ask any questions you need, to help decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.

Contact by phone or email, I will always respond within 24 hours.

Weekday, weekend and evening appointments available in person or online video or phone counselling sessions.

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.
