About me

I am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethics working with adults, couples and young people.

I am fundamentally humanistic in my approach to counselling which, means I believe that people have an instinctive drive to want to make themselves better. I also believe that each of us has the resources within ourselves to do this provided the conditions are right. For me, the relationship between the counsellor and the client is where those conditions are created.
Every client is unique so our work together will be specific to each individual, their needs and their goals for counselling.

I have worked successfully with all ages and genders with stress, anxiety, depression, chronic illness, bereavement, relationships, abuse, trauma, low self esteem, sexual issues, affairs and terminal illness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling from the Wealden Institute of Psychology.

In addition to my work in Private Practice, I am a School Counsellor offering counselling to children in both primary and secondary schools.

I have previously worked with the bereavement counselling team at The Hospice in the Weald.

Given my work prior to becoming a therapist, I have a particular interest in working with Emergency First Responders.

My registration with the BACP includes membership of its chlidren, young people and families.

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.
