About me

It can be a daunting process finding the right counsellor for your own unique situation and experience.

I place the relationship between client and counsellor at the heart of effective therapy and believe it is important that you find a counsellor you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings with.

At our initial session we will discuss what you would like from therapy. It also offers an opportunity for us to meet, to help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you and for me to ensure that I have the right experience to meet your needs. I offer this initial session at a reduced fee.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have many years experience of counselling individuals with a range of problems. I gained my Advanced Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling (BACP Accredited) in 2008 and have more recently received a Diploma in Transactional Analysis from UKATA.

I am a professional member of BACP, UKATA and EATA and abide by their code of ethics. I am professionally supervised by a UKCP registered supervisor as part of my commitment to ethical practice.

My theoretical approach is Transactional Analysis and I incorporate some CBT techniques into my work when appropriate.

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.

UKATA

UK Association for Transactional Analysis

UKATA (formally the Institute of Transactional Analysis) is the national UK Transactional Analysis organisation representing all fields of TA theory and practice. TA can be used as an effective tool in a wide range of contexts such as: personal development, management, coaching, counselling, psychotherapy, teaching, education, parenting and more.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also work with women who are struggling with or coming to terms with the menopause.

Fees

Our initial consultation of 50 minutes is £20.

If you decide that you would like to continue with therapy, I charge £45 per 50 minutes for individuals and £60 for couples.

Further information

If you would like to book a first session or even if you're not sure if counselling is for you and you'd like to ask a few more questions then please feel free to call or email me in confidence.

I have recently joined Resilience in Uckfield, a group of like minded ethical counsellors with therapy rooms in central Uckfield a few minutes walk from the train and bus station and with ample free parking nearby.

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.

Wheelchair user access

There is a flight of stairs leading to the therapy room.
