About me

A very warm welcome to you and thank you for accessing my details.

Choosing a Therapist

To help and see if I am the right person to offer you the support you need, I offer a free, introductory, twenty minute telephone consultation. If you would like to proceed we will arrange a convenient time for a first session. I can offer you a safe, confidential, comfortable counselling space to enable you to talk about what you are finding difficult at the moment. Sometimes if the words are just not there, we can use creative tools to explore what is happening. The choice is always yours.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. In addition to obtaining my general adult counselling qualification I have undertaken further training in the following:
- Working with the bereaved (Cruse Bereavement Care)
- Counselling skills with children using the arts (Institute for Art and Therapy in Education, Islington)
- Psychotherapeutic counselling with children and young people (Ocean Counselling Training, LLP, Rochester)

My private practice is located in Hook, Hampshire, just off the M3 at junction 5. Parking is available on the driveway.

I offer short and long term therapy to adults, children and young people. I balance this whilst working in a local secondary school as a School Counsellor.

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, I am able to offer online counselling via the platform 'Zoom' to teenage and adult clients. Face to face work has been suspended at this time (April 2020).

How can counselling help?

I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor. This means that I can offer you an empathic, non-judgemental, confidential counselling relationship where I will help support you to achieve your unique potential, empowering you to help make change happen through looking at your self development and your ability to make different choices. We will gently explore your feelings and emotions and help you to gain a greater understanding of yourself.

Member organisations

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.
