About me

I've been a professional Counsellor for almost 20 years.  Until March 2020,  I worked in a GP surgery as a Private Counsellor and as Practice Counsellor.  Since then I've been working from home, providing therapy online and on the telephone.  The times we live in have had a devastating impact on many people's emotional health.

People come to therapy for a  variety of reasons and with a range of problems.  My job is to unpick, with them, whatever is going on and to help them to see a way forward or "out of it".  Clients present with symptoms - stress, anxiety, depression, sadness, loneliness, grief, anger, family and relationship difficulties, work problems etc. -  and I offer a confidential space where they can talk freely. 

Sometimes this is enough to improve things but sometimes it's helpful to look back to get an understanding of how they got to this point and how they can avoid going back again. 

I offer strategies that enable clients to make changes, regain control and autonomy and to find ways to make life easier, more bearable.  I encourage clients to be curious about themselves and compassionate to themselves. 

I acknowledge that coming to talk to a professional may be excruciating for some people and it will be a last resort.  But the evidence shows that talking therapy may be as helpful as medication in the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression. 

Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss how I might be able to help you.

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.

Key details

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.
