About me

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.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
