About me

I offer counselling and psychotherapy to adults, young adults and couples. My role, as a counsellor, is to offer an emotional structure to facilitate exploration, understanding and healing. I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist and have worked therapeutically for over 30 years with adults, children, young people and families. The way I work is to facilitate a dialogue that offers an opportunity for understanding, change and healing. This approach is applicable to individual work and work with couples. Sometimes words can feel inadequate and using creative materials and resources can usefully inform the therapeutic work. This can provide an alternative way of communicating and expression.

I offer short term, solution focussed, and long term work. I have specialist experience in working with trauma and abuse. I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and non-discriminatory environment.

The qualities I bring to my work are sensitivity, empathy, openness, directness and creativity.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Working with the Couple in Mind (2015)
  • Certificate of Clinical Supervision (Psychodynamic) (2014)
  • Registered member of BACP (2013)

  • Advanced Social Work (Tavistock Clinic) (1993)
  • Certificate in Social Work Training (1988)
  • BSc Behavioural Sciences (Psychology) (1984)

Currently I have a private counselling, psychotherapy and supervision practice, and work as a therapist with a local fostering agency and as a supervisor with 2 local counselling services.

Since training as a psychotherapist I have worked within several different Further Education and Higher Education establishments offering counselling and psychotherapy to students and staff. I have worked with Macmillan Cancer Support as a therapist.

I worked as a therapeutic childcare Social Worker, within various different Local Authorities and also independently, before training as a psychotherapist and counsellor.

My psychotherapy training came from a humanistic approach. This means I hold a core belief that we have the capacity to heal ourselves, whatever that may mean for us, and therapy offers an opportunity to do this.

Member organisations

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

Supervision

I offer clinical supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists. This can be one to one or in a small group (generally two-three persons). I have been supervising and mentoring counsellors and psychotherapists and trainees for 8 years. As a social worker I supervised social workers, volunteers and trainee social workers. I hold a certificate of supervision.

I see supervision as a collaborative process between the counsellor/therapist and supervisor to facilitate and promote safe, ethically sound and creative clinical practice. My supervision is placed within a humanistic and psychodynamic framework. Where appropriate, and useful, the supervision process can include the use of art materials and image.

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.
