About me

Sometimes we all find ourselves facing situations or challenges in life, which we find distressing or feel unable to cope with. Counselling can make a real difference to how we think and feel about things and can help us to make the changes we want, for a happier life.

I offer deep level support to facilitate change and self sustaining mental health. I use varying skills and concepts depending on what is suitable for each need or individual. I believe that the most important element to therapy is the relationship and trust that is built.

I have 8 years experience of working with a broad range of issues including addiction, anger, trauma, depression, relationships and self-esteem.

I have also worked as a counsellor or support worker in colleges, an NHS addiction service and providing trauma informed support for Two Saints charities.

I work in a discreet purpose built room to ensure confidentiality both in Basingstoke town centre and Priestly Road (Basingstoke). 

How to take the next step

I would be delighted to hear from you and talk more about how counselling could help in your situation. Please feel free to contact me for an informal discussion.

Member organisations

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.

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.
