About me

I work with individuals and couples and offer sessions by telephone, Zoom (video) and where appropriate, face to face at my practice in Henley on Thames.

Perhaps you are feeling stuck or overwhelmed?

Whilst we cannot change other people and we often cannot change difficult circumstances which we find ourselves in - we can choose to adapt our own responses with better self-awareness. I offer my clients a relationship where it is safe to explore their experiences in confidence and without judgement or agenda.

None of us could have anticipated the changes to our work and social lives arising from the pandemic.  If, like many, you find yourself struggling to process difficult feelings I am pleased to be able to offer a confidential space to support you to reflect, adjust and move forward in a direction that feels right for you.

Please call me to explore how I might be able to support you to take the next step - without cost or obligation.  If you would like to meet, I can usually offer an Initial Consultation within two weeks.

I allow up to 75 minutes for this session (90 minutes for couples) which is an opportunity for us to explore in confidence how we might work together. There is no commitment to meet again and I would encourage anyone to meet with several professionals to allow themselves to find the support which is right for them. If you decide that I am not the right person for you to work with, I may be able to signpost you to alternative professional support.

Because life happens. Because self-care isn't selfish.

I offer flexible agreements. Having explored together how I might best support you, we can meet for a planned number of sessions to focus on a particular aim, to work together throughout a particular time period or to begin open ended work.

Regular sessions last 50 minutes for individuals or 60 minutes for two people and are  usually scheduled at the same time and day each week.

As I have sole use of my practice room, I am able to offer some flexibility on those occasions when life gets in the way of our usual session time.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Fees

Individual

Initial Consultation (up to 75 minutes) - fee of £55

Weekly sessions (50 minutes) - fee of £60 - £75 depending on time of day

Couples

Initial Consultation (up to 90 minutes) - fee of £75

Weekly sessions (60 minutes) - fee of £80 - 95 depending on time of day

No charge for a brief telephone conversation prior to booking a Consultation

Payment for sessions is due on a weekly basis. I am currently not able to offer any further reduced fees.

I have chosen not to register directly with any private health insurers at this time but am always happy to provide receipts for payment if you are able to claim directly or via a company scheme.  In my experience, many companies are willing to part or fully fund talking therapy so it is perhaps worth asking your employer what support may be available to you.

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.

Wheelchair user access

There is ramp access to the building, a wheelchair accessible toilet on Ground floor and a lift to Second Floor where practice is situated
