About me

With 29 years of experience as a BACP counsellor and psychotherapist, I provide authentic, compassionate and insightful support for my clients throughout the variety of life challenges they encounter, offering a genuine non-judgemental space. I believe in Positivity and my therapeutic style reflects this. You are the expert on your life and therapy is a journey of self discovery that facilitates change and inner freedom.

Our past influences our present, but it does not have to dictate our future. Life experiences, both positive and negative, can be stepping stones for discovering who we are today and who we aspire to be tomorrow. Exploring our relationships with others and, importantly, our relationship with ourselves can be a truly empowering experience.

With empathic support, effective tools and personal determination, I believe we can find confidence, happiness and a real sense of fulfilment - with a grounded, gentle and sincere approach.

My professional training began in 1989 - I have trained in both psychodynamic and integrative therapy, CBT (cognitive behavioural techniques), positive relaxation and guided imagery.

I am a full member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)

BACP (Children and Young People).

BACP ( Life Coaching )


How I work

  • Integrative - Working using a variety of approaches depending on the client and the nature of the problem.
  • Psychodynamic - Working with feelings and processes that are out of our everyday awareness.
  • Cognitive Behavioural - Working with Thinking (Cognitive) & Behaviour: This approach facilitates greater awareness and insight into our patterns of thinking and how they influence our everyday behaviour.


Therapy can help us adopt new ways of thinking and alternative ways of coping with situations we find difficult.

No matter how bad you may feel, we can talk about it together, in confidence - as all my work is confidential and adheres to the BACP code of ethics.

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about how we may work together. Please be gentle with yourself and if you need to talk, reach out.

I look forward to meeting you.

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.
