I am an experienced & Accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with clinics in the Yeovil/Sherborne and Poundbury/Dorchester area. I offer a flexible appointment system across the day. However, I cannot offer sessions on weekends due to delivering training.
Please specify your preferred location for therapy.
I offer therapy aimed at your own personal needs in a confidential and safe environment, where we can work together in a non-judgemental and respectful way allowing you the time needed for you to explore your own emotions and thoughts.
I work with the purpose of "working with the whole person". Therefore, I offer what is wanted, relevant and mutually agreed with you.
I work with adults, children and young people. I have a vast amount of experience of working with people with learning difficulties. Some of the areas I work with are: anxiety, general anxiety disorder, depression, post natal depression, feeling sad, relationship issues, bipolar, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), PTSD, trauma, family issues and bereavement.

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 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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
