About me

There are times in your life that things just don't go as planned and you need a someone professional to confide in where you can explore unspoken feelings and concerns in a supportive and confidential space. I am an experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor offering short and long term counselling to individuals and couples who are in this situation.

My private practice is based in the rural location of Charter Alley just north of Basingstoke. I offer a free assessment session as I feel it is important for you to find a counsellor you will be able to relate to.

I have a comfortable room in which to counsel and receive referals from other local agencies.

I work closely with my clients and work within the BACP Ethical Framework.

I have regular supervision to ensure the work is beneficial and effective for my clients.

COVID-19 During the Lockdown and isolating period I am only offering online sessions, please call or email to arrange an assessment.

Member organisations

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.
