About me

I am a professionally qualified Counsellor working with individuals face-to-face in the Southampton area.

I am committed to providing therapy within a confidential and safe space in which you can allow yourself to talk about your concerns, issues and difficulties, which perhaps you feel unable to share with others.

These issues may include anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, relationships, bereavement, abuse, or life changing decisions.

I work using an integrative counselling approach, enabling me to pull on elements from a variety of counselling modalities, best suited to your needs and character.

If you are seeking counselling for the first time, I hope to encourage you to ‘give it a try’. If you have previous experience of counselling, positive or negative, no two experiences can be the same. I hope to encourage you to ‘give it another go’.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a First Class BA (Honours) degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling from Middlesex University.

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.

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.
