About me

Feeling anxious or depressed from time to time is a normal part of being human, but sometimes our experiences or circumstances can cause these feelings to become overwhelming, stopping us from living in the way that we would like.

At the moment we are all having to deal with the added pressures of coronavirus. The pandemic has brought unexpected change and huge uncertainty for many as well as illness and bereavement for some.

Whether you are troubled by current events or something completely unrelated, I offer a space where you can talk about and gain greater understanding of your feelings without being judged.

I will work with you to explore your situation, making sense of your experiences in order to bring relief and greater clarity. This puts you in a better place to move on with your life, perhaps by making changes or by making peace with a situation that cannot be changed.

I am currently offering sessions online using Zoom, which gives you the flexibility to attend the session from wherever you feel comfortable.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MA in Counselling & Psychotherapy from City University and more than ten years of counselling experience. Before training as a counsellor I worked as a manager in a City accountancy firm.

My counselling training was integrative, meaning that I have studied a number of different approaches but my preferred way of working is existential. Existential therapy is based in philosophy but basically means that I understand my clients issues as problems in living. Consequently I do not seek to diagnose or label clients in any way.

I am registered and accredited with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and practice in accordance with their ethical standards.

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.
