I believe that attending counselling does not mean that you are a "nut case" nor are you "mental", merely that there is something going on, for which you would benefit from some time and space in which to process what is happening.
I work one-to-one with people in a way that suits them most beneficially. My only aim is to build a therapeutic relationship so that you have that safe space to explore what is happening in your life. As well as counselling adults using a combination of psychodynamic, CBT, systemic and person centred skills, I have a specialism in working with children; individuals with special educational needs or those on the autistic spectrum; and in working with creative media.
I offer counselling face to face at my office in Kings Hill; via video call technology or over the telephone. I like my clients to use the format that they would prefer to use.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am trained with an M.A counselling and a level 4 certificate in counselling children alongside having training from many other C.P.D sessions which I have undertaken. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and have a current DBS.
I have experience of working with those who have been abused; people who need assistance with anger management; those who suffer with depression and or anxiety; from bereavement and grief; those with disabilities or who are in chronic pain; people with relationship issues; people who lack in confidence & self-esteem; individuals with disordered eating and those who self-harm; people who suffer with stress and trauma including post traumatic stress disorder.
I have experience working with individuals, couples and families, working with them in the way which suits them best to enable them to work through their circumstances and look to the future.
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
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.

Should you wish to proceed with counselling then please do not hesitate to contact me either by email or by telephone. Leave me a message as to when the best times are for me to make contact with you.
I will then telephone to arrange for you to come in to the agency for an assessment session where you will have the opportunity to find out a little more about me and how I work; and will be able to tell me a little about your situation. If following this, you are happy to continue with the counselling sessions, we will arrange a suitable time during the week for you to attend the counselling sessions on a weekly basis.
