About me

I work collaboratively and creatively to help clarify the changes you want and support progress towards them. The content and nature of my therapy is tailored to each individual, I seek to understand your situation, adopting ways of working and a pace to suit you.

As my clients get to know themselves better and challenge and change aspects of who they are, they most often speak of results in terms of having: the confidence to move forward, better relationships and more clarity about who they are and their direction in life.

Some people find the confidence they want in just a few sessions, often recovering a sense of their 'old self'. For long standing issues and more lasting change an open ended arrangement is more suitable.

My counselling works for people who are experiencing emotional pain of any sort. However it is particularly useful for those:

  • Whose experience includes a loss of direction, purpose and zest for life
  • Who have realised that something has to change on the inside before it can change on the outside
  • Who, despite their fears, have the courage to enter unknown territory in order to find a new way

Prior to becoming a qualified counsellor in 2007 I worked in business, management and as a certified management consultant.

You may contact me without obligation and in confidence.

Training, qualifications & experience

In 2004 I commenced training for a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling.

In 2005 I commenced work as a voluntary counsellor with a community counselling service.

I qualified in 2007. Since then I have worked, as a volunteer and as a part-time telephone counsellor with an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). I have worked exclusively in private practice since 2012.

In 2008 I co-founded Cotswold Talking Therapies, an organisation that provides services to the public and to therapists in the Cotswold area.

In 2013 I was awarded accreditation for counselling/psychotherapy by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

In 2014 I was awarded a Diploma in Integrative Supervision. I offer private supervision to individuals, groups and organisations and I have developed a special interest in supporting colleagues through BACP's accreditation process.

In 2016 I set up the Accreditation Support Network.

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.

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).

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.
