About me

Sometimes life can present difficult challenges. When that happens its easy to feel confused, lonely, stuck and perhaps even judged. I can help you by providing a space for realisation, processing trauma and finding greater inner peace and freedom to live the life you wish for. I believe the most important relationship we have is with ourselves. Having self compassion and being at peace with one's self can be difficult to practice. I want to bring you hope and support you in becoming your own best friend. 

I have had the privilege of working with some amazingly courageous clients; processing  the confusion and pain around loss and grief;   supporting victims of sexual abuse and trauma which can come in many guises;    helping clients overcome their intrusive thoughts and OCD compulsions;    walking with young people through the pressures of growing up;   working with clients who suffer with depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders and break down in family relationships.

I have a warm, caring approach and will work with you to find a way forward that is best for you in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.  Everyone is unique and therapy is different for every person, I will work with you to combine the most effective therapy for your individual needs.

Why not take a look at my website and see if I am a someone you would like to work with - www.buckinghamshirecounselling.co.uk. 

I offer a free initial telephone consultation. This can give us the opportunity to get to know each other and for you to discuss what you are looking for from therapy.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
