About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, working from a comfortable therapy room in the Buckinghamshire town of High Wycombe. I work with adults (18+) from all cultures, orientations and backgrounds and have experience of working with people who are struggling with a broad range of emotional issues. You may be struggling with depression or anxiety. Perhaps you have been affected by a loss, or have experienced trauma. Your relationships with family, friends or colleagues might feel complicated or stuck. Or maybe you have a sense that something just isn't quite right, even if you are not sure what it is. There are many reasons why we seek support from counselling.

I offer weekly, 50 minutes sessions in a confidential, consistent and non-judgemental space. Together we will look at the roots of how your problems developed and how those experiences may be influencing your life today. We can think carefully how things might change, so that you can aim to live your life in a different way.

Training, qualifications & experience

Education

University College London, Bsc (Hons)
​Advanced Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling
​​Professional Membership of British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP)

Before I qualified as a counsellor I worked clinically in the NHS for many years, mainly in the fields of neurology and cancer care. The medical knowledge and experience I gained through this work has given me a particular understanding and interest in the links between our physical and emotional health.

In addition to my private practice, I have worked for a number of years as a counsellor at South Bucks Counselling, a charity in High Wycombe offering reduced cost counselling to the local community. I continue to update my skills and learning by regularly attending Continuing Professional Development courses (workshops, conferences, further training). As is mandatory for all counsellors, I receive regular supervision in order to maintain the highest standard of practice. I am fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS check.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the largest professional body representing counselling and psychotherapy in the UK. As such, I adhere to their Ethical Framework which underpins the importance of client care and confidentiality.

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.

Wheelchair user access

During this difficult and unprecedented period resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, I am able to offer on-line and telephone counselling.
