About me

I am an experienced Person-Centred Counsellor accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor (United Kingdom Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I am also a qualified Person-Centred Supervisor.

As a Person-Centred counsellor, I believe that you have the answers that you need within you, but sometimes it can be difficult to find the inner resources that are required to lead a fulfilled and balanced life.

I offer a non-judgemental, respectful and confidential environment where you can work through the particular areas of difficulty that you may experience.

I will not tell you what to do or give you advice but, together, we can journey towards a place where you feel more able to find your own way, drawing on your own resources and find an inner equilibrium and feel able to understand yourself better.

I would work with you in a non-judgemental way, respecting your autonomy, your values, your capacity for choice and your cultural context.

Sessions are confidential, which offers you the freedom to explore and talk about anything within legal limitations. Usually, a session lasts one hour and would often be weekly for as long as you find them helpful. Together, we can work out what would suit you best.

As an accredited member of the BACP, I am bound by its Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Accredited and Registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and I hold a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling.

In addition, I have undergone training in many areas, including bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression, relationship counselling along many more.
I have worked in middle and secondary schools, youth agencies and for CRUSE Bereavement care.

Alongside my private practice, I am contracted by the NHS to provide counselling for its staff within the mental health sector of NHS in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

I am a Supervisor for trainee counsellors at ARC Counselling Service in Wokingham, as well as in my private practice, where I also provide supervision for qualified and experienced therapists.

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.

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.
