About me

My aim is to provide a warn, confidential and safe place in which you can talk about and explore your difficulties and worries as well as your hopes and wishes.

I am an accredited counsellor with some 20 years experience. I have been living and working in Swanage on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck in Dorset since 2013. My work is relational and Integrative.

I will listen carefully and respectfully to your concerns, thoughts and feelings. And our sessions will be a conversation between us. I hope to help you notice and understand how you may be making certain choices in your life, or coping with difficulties you are experiencing. I will support you in using your resources and abilities to make any changes you may wish to make, or perhaps to see your life and situation from a new perspective

I offer individual long and short-term counselling and I am happy working with adolescents, adults and elderly people.

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.
