About me

Counselling can offer you the chance to make sense of what isn't working well in your life. Together we might: make sense of how your past is affecting your present, look at how you relate to yourself and others, pay attention to your patterns of thoughts and behaviours, bring awareness to how you experience your body and make links between your thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations. Part of therapy is experimenting in a safe way to make changes to the way that we habitually do things.

The first step in any change is to notice what is happening and working with someone else can be invaluable in offering an outside perspective.
Coming to therapy is a big step, and it can feel daunting. I offer a reliable and secure space where we can work together to understand what is going on in your life and how you might go about making changes. I offer both short and long term ways of working. I work during school term times.

An important factor for successful therapy is that you feel comfortable with the therapist that you choose. It's worth seeing a few therapists for a session before you make your choice so that you have a clearer idea of who you are most drawn to. My goal as your therapist is to support you for the time that we journey together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified integrative counsellor with 3 years of experience working face to face. I now work online and by telephone.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Fees

Additional information

I charge £65 per session but I am able to offer some flexibility based on personal circumstances.

I offer a free 15 minute telephone call to discuss any questions you may have - please get in touch via email to arrange this. This is without obligation to move forward to starting work with me.  If we agree to work together I suggest that we spend the first one to two sessions exploring what has brought you to therapy and what you hope to change through coming to therapy.  If appropriate we would spend time on your personal and family history to give context to your current difficulties. We can discuss different approaches to ways of working/agree fees. 

Further information

I work during term times in blocks of 5-6 weeks.

I work Mon and Tues 9:30 - 14:30 and Wed to Fri 9:30 - 12:30
