About me

Hello, I am available for online sessions via FaceTime or zoom. and face to face sessions in Marlborough from

March 2022. Feelings of anxiety, panic attacks, feeling sad, depression, fear and low self esteem are only some of the reactions you may be experiencing as we all adjust to this external threat that none of us can see.

I am an Integrative Therapist who believes that we can access our own internal and external resources at this time and I will stand alongside you and work with you as you find your own way of adapting. There are lots of therapies available but I sincerely believe it is the long lasting, warm, accepting relationship that builds up over the therapy sessions that is where the healing and transformation occurs. By searching for help which is the first step ,I hope that I can be that reliable, warm, accepting Counsellor for you if you choose to work with me.

I have specialised in working with adults and young people over 16 who have experienced or are experiencing difficulties in coping with life. This can be through a life event such as an accident, bereavement, separation, divorce or the longer term pain of growing up with learning difficulties or a challenging family situation or as an adult in difficult or abusive relationships.

What do I offer?

I am trained in sensorimotor psychotherapy which enables me to work with the memories of events and experiences held not only in the our mind but also in the body. They may have remained hidden there until we pay attention to them. Latest research informs us that what we are feeling and the sensations that we experience are the bodies way of recording what has happened. They are also the key to working with the wisdom of our whole being to heal and restore. This takes place when we mindfully approach our experiences and make contact with our inner knowing that has often been shut down or not attended to as we have been overwhelmed. This in essence is 'trauma' and the work we will do is to slowly pay attention to what is happening to us that has left us with symptoms not memories , symptoms of  illness, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, thoughts of self harm or suicide. We would work together on your presenting difficulties and where needed I would also recommend other therapists such as a nutritionist to look at balancing the system with the correct diet or equine therapists who work to restore balance using the therapeutic nature of horses.

What qualifications do I have?

I have a psychology BSc (Hons) degree and a post qualifying level 7 diploma in counselling young adults and children.  I also have a level 1 specialist training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I have a PGCE and I am a teacher who specialised in teaching children with learning difficulties, such as dyslexia and autism ( SENCO).  I am also a Myers Brigg practitioner which means that I am trained to help you find your personality preferences. This helps us make sense of who you are and it helps to guide us to find your strengths and abilities that you may not have fully developed yet.

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.

Additional information

When I work

Online sessions via zoom sessions available and face to face sessions as from March 2022

Further information

On receiving your email or telephone enquiry I will respond by email or telephone to take a referral which means we would discuss what has brought you into counselling. I ask for session fees in advance of our first meeting as we would arrange to meet online at a time that was suitable and in that session we would agree on the number of sessions required, and on the work that you wanted to do.  The sessions run for an hour, each week and I would ask for 7 days notice of cancellation of a session for holidays and 24 hours in case of illness.

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.
