About me

Sometimes we need a bit of help making sense of something, or finding a way out of a dark and lonely place? Or we feel a sense panic and anxiety but don't understand where it's coming from and how to deal with it.

Maybe you'd like someone to listen to you - to help you cope with everyday life? Perhaps you're struggling in a relationship, or coming to terms with a recent bereavement? Or it could be that you're just looking for more fulfilment and happiness in your life?

Whatever the reason, together we can work through your problems to find a different, more hopeful way of looking at things – resulting in a clearer mind, a better way of coping, and a deeper understanding of yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified, BACP registered counsellor practising in a relaxed, safe environment in Walton-on-the-Hill, Surrey.

Because everybody is unique, I believe in working in a way that best suits you and reaches the outcome you are hoping to achieve in counselling. Therefore, I practise and combine various approaches including Psychodynamic, Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
