About me

I am an experienced person-centred counsellor and work with adults, young people and children in Cheltenham and surroundings. I can offer you counselling in both English and French.

I have many years experience of working one to one with clients of varied ages, backgrounds and circumstances.

The counselling I offer you is non-judgemental and respectful, which enables you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe, confidential space.

I can offer you my support to work on:

  • anxiety / panic attacks
  • depression / low mood / general sadness
  • relationship difficulties
  • bereavement
  • work-related stress and other issues
  • family difficulties
  • low self esteem

Please call, text or email me to make your first appointment.

I have extensive experience in bereavement issues, including childhood bereavement. This includes generic death as well as bereavement through suicide or sudden death.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have a lot of experience working with people who have been bereaved by suicide or by sudden death.

Fees

£50.00 per session

Additional information

£50 per 50 minute session.

I offer a free 20-minute telephone conversation prior to the first session so that my clients can ask any questions about the way I work.  This enables my clients to tell me what they are looking for in counselling and what they expect from counselling and from me as their potential therapist.

Availability

Evening and Saturday sessions are available, for face to face, telephone and video sessions - please contact me to discuss your time requirements.
