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.

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.

Wheelchair accessible by prior arrangement
