About me

I am offering a confidential, respectful, non-judgemental space which is underpinned by genuineness, compassion, and curiosity.

In my therapeutic practice I have worked with lots of different issues, such as anxiety, low mood/depression, self-harm, difficulties with eating, difficulties in relationships, anger, suicidality, shame, bereavement, LGBTQ+, intrusive thoughts, neurodiversity, self-esteem, trauma, and abuse, although this isn’t comprehensive. 

I trained Integratively, which means I utilise various ideas and concepts to aid and underpin my practice, whilst ensuring I am led by what is important to you. I am passionate about delivering client centred care, so that individuals are treated with knowledge and respect for their values and personal priorities. My experience of working within the NHS (SABP), community and charity sector, and in state secondary schools, has allowed me to work with a diverse range of people of varying needs.

I am offering face to face sessions in Frimley (GU16) on Thursday and Friday, and telephone or video call on Tuesday and Wednesday's. 

The first step is to make contact for a free initial meeting via phone or video call at a mutually agreeable time. Please note for under 16's I will require an initial meeting with parent/carer and the young person.

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.
