About me

I am an experienced accredited Counsellor with a private consulting room at my home in Monmouth. I can offer you a confidential and supportive place to explore the issues that are causing you concern. If you are currently suffering from anxiety, depression or are aware that your coping strategy is now working against you, counselling could help. No issue that is causing you distress is ever silly or stupid, I will value and respect you at all times.

Talking to me can increase your self-awareness. This can lead to a better understanding of your past/present issues, together with a confidence to make informed choices about your future.

What to expect...

Counselling is about what you want from the session, it is your agenda, not mine. Usually, in the first session, I will explore your history with you, as I believe to understand our present patterns/beliefs/rules we need to understand our past. This will only be done with your consent and at your pace.
Counselling can often be an emotional experience, particularly when exposing past pains, it can also be an inspirational experience.
Many of my clients tell me they feel a sense of relief after the first session.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Schema-focused Cognitive Therapy and Person Centred are the theories that inform my practice.

There is NO obligation or expectation. After the first session, it's up to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 14 years experience working with many different client issues, both in private practice and as a volunteer in charitable organisations.

I have worked with clients for a few weeks, several months or sometimes a year or more. As unique individuals, there is no set time for therapy, but in my experience, many people notice some change after a couple of sessions.

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.

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.
