About me

I offer person-centred counselling and supervision, working in a peaceful, rural setting.
My focus is you and the individual circumstances that have brought you to try counselling.
I believe that by offering genuine empathy and acceptance, the foundations of trust can be laid and together we can work through your difficulties.
I also work in secondary schools, with clients aged 11 -18, and am happy to also see this age group as private clients.
"Walking therapy" is also possible - please visit my website www.hollingbournecounselling.co.uk for further details.
Issues I am used to dealing with include: abuse; addictions (including eating disorders and self harm); anger issues; anxiety and phobias; bereavement and loss (grief); depression; family conflict; relationship issues; self esteem; sexuality issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

Before training to be a counsellor, I was a drama teacher for 25 years.
I qualified in 2004 with an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Counselling.
I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I work as a counsellor in schools and in private practice.
I have also trained adults in counselling at K College, Tonbridge and run private self development courses (see www.hollingbournecounselling.co.uk)
i am qualified in supervision, having trained with Cascade Supervision, and I supervise individuals, both qualified and still in training. I also facilitate a Creative Supervision Group (see Events.)

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.
