About me

I am a psychotherapist and counsellor offering a warm, supportive confidential service for individuals.  Each person responds to the events that happen in their lives differently.  Your issue, what you would like to bring to therapy is the starting point for our work together.

Talking with a therapist can help you understand how to manage difficult feelings, problems, conflict and distress. A way of exploring and untangling thoughts and feelings.  It can help you to move on with your life in a more fulfilling way. Anger management, bereavement, anxiety, depression, relationships issues, divorce, affairs and betrayal, eating patterns, child related issues and addiction are just some of the reasons for seeking therapy. You might not feel there is a specific issue, just an uneasiness and a desire to think about that.

Realising that things are difficult is the first step and you may be wondering if therapy can help. An initial session can help you see if it feels right for you at this time.

My integrative approach draws particularly upon person-centred and psychodynamic approaches as well as existential philosophies. We cannot change the past events in our lives but we can choose how we think about them and how they affect our current being. I believe we all have the ability to change and grow. Therapy is a safe space to bring issues and to think about things that maybe troubling. How much you wish to say is your choice.

Short or long-term options are available. If the problem is specific, a few sessions may be all you want (6 - 12) .  Or you might like to work in a more open ended way - taking time to explore your world and perhaps thinking about the meaning of your life and your experiences.  Maybe the issues you are facing have been with you for some time and you wish for a space to consider them - without knowing how long it will take.

Please contact me by phone or by email, I am happy to talk about what you are looking for and to arrange a first session.

I also offer supervision to both qualified and trainee counsellors and therapists. Individual and group supervision are available depending on your needs.

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 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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

My clients are from all walks of life and come to therapy because there is a specific issue worrying them, perhaps at work or in their relationships. Sometimes there is non specific anxiety and a feeling that talking to someone might help clarify what is wrong.

Often things are not as they seem and you might find in therapy that you start with something that you would like to explore and then find that other topics arise. I work with you, on the material that you choose to bring.

I offer supervision to therapists - both trainees and experienced therapists assisting them in the development of their practice.  Supervision can be on an individual basis or you may join a group.

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.
