About me

We all experience difficulties along life's journey. Many times we find ways to address them, other times we can benefit from someone to talk to and journey with us through our difficult time.

I offer therapy for difficulties like depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, panic attacks, anger, bereavement, trauma, abuse, gender and identity, relationships, illness, work related issues.

Our needs are important and complex, and our past experiences and relationships can affect the way we feel and think about current situations. I offer a safe and confidential environment, in which therapy can help you understand your difficulties more fully, and work towards the changes that you want.

You may want to work through long-standing difficulties over a longer period of time, or attend sessions for a shorter period of time, to address more immediate concerns for which you are seeking resolution.

I am a BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist with over 25 years' experience, working in private practice, the NHS and counselling organisations. My practice has also been enriched by working in different countries, cultures and organisations, so I also have an interest on the impact of multi-cultural and multi-lingual environments on our beliefs about ourselves, our identity and how we function.

I welcome referrals from individuals, EAP's, the private and public sectors.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
