About me

I am a fully qualified, friendly, gentle and experienced Person-Centred Counsellor dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, and relationships.  I  also have a particular interest in counselling people, or carers of people, with brain injuries.  I also specialise in counselling carers of those with Dementia.

Sometimes we don't know why we feel the way we do and talking to a Counsellor can help you to explore these feelings and work out a way through even when things may appear hopeless.

I offer a supportive, non-judgmental and friendly face to face environment using a variety of therapies including Person-Centred, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and sandtrays.

In addition if your condition prevents you from travelling I offer home visits.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor who works to the high standards and ethical framework of the BACP.  I began counselling in 2001 when I got my certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling.

  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling Skills
  • Individual member of BACP
  • Enhanced DBS Certificate

To make sure that I'm totally up to date with the developments in counselling I attend many courses and conferences each year.

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.

My counselling hub is in my back garden but please note that the toilet is upstairs in my house.
