About me

My relational approach focuses on the belief that we all have the potential and ability to adapt and to achieve positive relational patterns, and to overcome and change destructive or negative behaviour, often resulting from a pattern or survival strategy set in childhood.Empathy, congruence and acceptance are central to creating a trusting relationship. I always adopt a non-judgemental, genuine approach to enable a person to feel safe and understood whilst maintaining high levels of confidentiality. This helps a client to feel valued and able to develop their own solution.

I am experienced in working with people who are:

  • FEELING GENERALLY LOW (e.g. experiencing ongoing loneliness, a sense of futility, a lack of direction, moodiness, stress, confusion, anger, trouble sleeping, depression, anxiety)
  • FACING A SPECIFIC CRISIS (e.g. loss, change, trauma, illness, issues around fertility, abortion, relationship break-ups, divorce, bereavement)
  • OVERCOMING ADDICTION (e.g. illegal and legal drugs, food related addiction)
  • WANTING TO IMPROVE RELATIONSHIPS (e.g. experiencing difficulty forming and sustaining satisfying relationships, problems with personal or work relationships, difficulty with intimacy)
  • TRYING TO COME TO TERMS WITH PHYSICAL AND/OR SEXUAL ABUSE (including victims of domestic violence).

What is Counselling:
Counselling is a confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, beliefs or experiences over a period of time with the support of a trained listener. It is a non-judgmental, safe space, which helps to be able to reflect what is happening in your life and find alternative ways of handling them.

Talking it through with a trusted counsellor helps to develop self-awareness and insight into how a person relates both to themselves and to those around them, along with finding new methods of dealing with everyday life experiences. It is important that counsellors don't tell you what to do, as the aim is for a person to gain autonomy and self-government.

What next:
The first step is to arrange an initial session, where we can meet each other and discuss what you would like to achieve from counselling. It will also give you an idea of how I work and is an opportunity for you to ask me questions.If you decide that counselling is for you and we both feel that we can work together then, usually, sessions are weekly and last for 50 minutes.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership

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.
