About me

I work with clients with a wide range of issues, which vary from an undefinable feeling that “something is missing” in their lives, to dealing with the devastating impact of major loss, abuse or early childhood trauma.

I believe that being valued as a person, without being judged, is an important part of the process by which an individual can find a way to discover and accept who they are, and reconnect with themselves.

Clients have described my counselling style as creating a gentle tranquil space in their lives where they feel heard and understood, and where it feels safe for them to explore and resolve their deepest fears and anxieties. Please feel free to contact me to learn more.

What I can help with:

Stress and anxiety; depression; feelings of hopelessness; personal relationship problems; family tensions; bereavement; self development; work and career issues; loss; sexual and emotional abuse; physical abuse; spiritual development; low self esteem; drug and alcohol misuse; chronic illness; adoption issues; anger management: emotional trauma; post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); compulsive behaviour.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor with a post graduate diploma in humanistic and integrative counselling. I am also a course tutor at the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC), a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I hold a Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling BCPC, 2011 and a Foundation Certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling, 2001.

I am also a supervisor in training with CSTD (Centre for Supervision and Team Development) and I am endorsed by CTSD to provide low cost supervision to students, counsellors and psychotherapists. I regularly attend continuing professional development (CPD) training courses and events in order to advance my learning.

My early career was spent in the business world when I travelled and worked in many countries overseas. Before I completed my counselling training I worked extensively with organisations in England and Scotland providing care and support for families with children who had previously been homeless. My wife and I are also former foster carers.

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.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. 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.
