About me

Are you feeling that something needs to change? Do you feel you might benefit from counselling? Are you looking for a space to talk through what is happening for you?

For some people, approaching counselling can feel like stepping into the unknown. I wish to reassure you that I offer a kind welcome and gentle understanding.

You have the option of a 15 minute phone call (free) prior to making a decision or booking a session.  This gives you the opportunity to bring any thoughts or questions that you might have. It also allows you to get an idea as to whether we could work well together.

In my work with clients, I offer space to talk about their concerns; sometimes there is a feeling of hopelessness, not being able to make sense of things or feeling lost and no one understands. I support an exploration of what is happening for the client.  As we work together, clients may notice their feelings changing, they may notice their confidence growing and develop the ability to make decisions that work better for themselves.  Living can become more meaningful, with a personal sense of purpose.

If you feel this is a time for change, you are welcome to get in touch.

Training, qualifications & experience

Pursuing a long held interest in understanding how different people make sense of life, I decided to study and qualify as a counsellor. I completed my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling at Highlands College, Jersey.

I continue my training and development. Workshops and courses I have attended include:  Practising Existential Therapy by Ernesto Spinelli, Working at Relational Depth by Mick Cooper, Trauma and the Body by Carolyn Spring and Dealing with Distress by Carolyn Spring.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

NCS

National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
