About me

I am a qualified Counsellor, who is committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I will help you to explore difficult thoughts and feelings you may be experiencing. I will not judge you or tell you what to do but will encourage you to talk about what is going on and explore what you are feeling, so we can work together to identify ways of coping.

I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

I work from a home office, located in the village of Silchester which is close to Tadley, Reading, Newbury and Basingstoke, and within easy reach of North Hampshire and West Berkshire. There is ample parking on the driveway

I am a member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am registered with the Counselling Directory for professional counsellors.

I receive regular Supervision in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework to ensure my professional standards are maintained.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • L2 Certificate in Counselling Theory
  • L3 Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • TA101
  • Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis

The humanistic approach provides the client with an opportunity to explore their self-development so they have a deeper understanding of who they are and what they are feeling, resulting in improved self-awareness.

Transactional Analysis provides a connection with a client’s past and identifies how this may influence on today's decisions. This approach helps clients become more connected with their thinking and acting skills.

As well as working in Private Practice, I currently volunteer as a Bereavement Counsellor at St Michael's Hospice in Basingstoke and have previously worked at Andover Mind.

I regularly attend workshops and training courses to ensure I am in the best position to help my clients.

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.

Fees

Sessions last for 50 minutes and are charged at £40.

The first session gives us an opportunity to get to know each other, for me to understand what has brought you to counselling and for us to determine whether we would be able to work together.

Full payment for sessions is required at the beginning of each session by cash/cheque or in advance by BACS.

The full fee will be charged for missed appointments. For appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, fees will be payable at the next session.

Appointments are currently available on Mondays, Fridays and some evenings.

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.
