About me

The choice to take yourself into counselling is possibly the most courageous and personal one that you may make.

We will all, inevitably, at some point in our lives experience situations and emotions that we cannot make sense of. It's at times like these where talking therapy can help.

I offer a private and confidential space to help explore and reflect upon those difficulties - all at your pace. I work in a creative and integrative way and adapt slightly how I work to best meet your needs.

Through these sessions we will work together to gain a better understanding of yourself/yourselves. In doing this, you are better able to find the strength (that is sometimes hard to find) to unravel such difficulties and have a clearer view to moving forwards.

I am based in Gloucester and have a counselling room easily accessible from the M5 (Junction 12) and the A38.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified therapist in Therapeutic Counselling and am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy). I have also started working with Couples after doing a course with Humans Givens Training.

Over the last couple of years, I have gained experience through working with local charity Listening Post before staring privately.

I have worked with issues such as; loss and bereavement, depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties and past trauma.

My working and personal life experiences have allowed me to learn/develop and be empathetic to the difficulties that we individually experience.

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

The first session is an assessment type session, which allows you to talk about why you think counselling will help, plus get to know me and how I work and then we decide if you’re happy to continue further with it. It just means that there’s no pressure to do anything more than the initial meet.

Sessions for individuals are £60 per session and last for 50 minutes.
Sessions for couples are £85 per session and last for 50 minutes. 

There is free parking outside the building where the therapy takes place.

Key details

My room is up one flight of stairs and the building has no lift sadly, so clients would need to be able to get up stairs.
