About me

With all that is currently happening in response to COVID-19, and in order to continue to support clients safely, I am offering both phone and online sessions. Please contact me to find out more.

Sometimes in our lives, we experience periods where we need additional support to manage a difficult situation, work through a particular issue, or understand something from our past. Whilst friends and family can be a huge source of love and support, at times we need someone impartial to help us to make sense of things. I offer a space that is safe and calm, non-judgemental and confidential, so that you may share whatever is going on for you. I consider you to be the expert on your life, and my role as a therapist is to sit alongside you, as we make sense together, as an act of collaboration and co-creation.

I believe that relationships are where we can break, and that ultimately they are also where we can mend and heal. The process of healing looks and feels very different for each of us, but I feel that therapy, at the right time in your life, can provide a sacred space which is conducive to such healing, propelling you into new ways of being.

I work slowly and mindfully, and encourage creative processes and use techniques such as mindfulness and bodywork. I work both long-term and short-term. If you are interested in meeting, we would have an exploratory consultation where we establish if we can work together. We would then agree on a day and time for us to meet weekly for a 50-minute session.

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.

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.
