About me

If you are reading this, then you have taken the first step in helping yourself to feel better. You may be looking for a counsellor to to help you make sense of your life, or yourself, and how you can move forward from your problems. You may be suffering with difficult and strong emotions about your personal life, work, school or college, and being able to talk to someone who is able to really listen and understand about how you are feeling can be so powerful. Counselling can be a way of  helping you to start this journey of self-healing.

I realise it can be a daunting task knowing what you are looking for, and making sense of what is available. So what do I have to offer?

I am a fully qualified and trained counsellor, registered with the BACP. Abuse, depression, stress and anxiety, as well as eating disorders, family issues, low-confidence and low self -esteem are just some of the issues I have helped clients to deal with.

I offer a safe confidential space to talk about your problems, where you can feel you feel comfortable, knowing that you are being listened to and not judged.

My work takes place in a comfortable and peaceful room in Bishop Sutton in the heart of the Chew Valley, with good parking facilities.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
