About me

I am a compassionate person-centred and relational counsellor who is able to listen and engage with you so you can explore whatever is causing you distress.

You will have a space to consider your thoughts and feelings in confidence, to help you through any sort of crisis or life-changing event you may be experiencing in the present, or from your past.

My belief is that in making a good relationship inside the counselling room, you will find your interactions with the world outside will also be improved.

I can work short or long-term. We can review our sessions at regular intervals to check on progress and desired outcomes.

I am registered and accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and have a quiet and comfortable room with good access, situated on the edge of Stroud.

Training, qualifications & experience

CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling 2008
Tavistock Centre, Certificate in Psychosexual Studies 2016
CRCT Diploma in Relational Couples Therapy 2017
City&Guilds Level 3 Award in Education and Training 2017
OCST Diploma in Online Counselling 2020

I am integratively trained and have been in practice for over 13 years, working with adults and couples, with issues such as:

relationship difficulties
loss and bereavement
depression
trauma
low self-esteem
fears and anxiety
identity
ageing
eco-anxiety

I have trained to certificate level in psychosexual therapy to enhance my work with couples, so sexual issues can be talked through together with confidence and sensitivity.

I have been committed to the 12-step programme through Al-Anon (a fellowship which helps friends and families of alcoholics) for many years. Although I do not work with active addiction I have a particular understanding of the effects of it in a family unit, and other close relationships.

I also teach on the Counselling Diploma course at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College, in Stroud.

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.

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.

Further information

I am working online via Zoom until guidance about wearing face coverings for close contact work changes. I find it is a good alternative to working in the room, and will offer the same qualities and level of confidentiality in these sessions.
