I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of The British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and I abide by their ethical framework. I work in private practice in Port Solent. I am fully insured and hold a current and up to date enhanced DBS certificate.
I believe we all have the capacity to reach our full potential and enjoy life. As an Integrative Counsellor I have trained in many different models of therapy. I have learnt a number of skills and ways of working from the different models allowing me to tailor the way I work for each individual. I do not believe therapy is one size fits all. Everyone is different with a unique experience of the world.
Are you feeling scared, lonely, confused, anxious, sad or depressed? Do you feel you have nobody to talk to? No matter what your fears or concerns are I can provide a safe and welcoming environment, free of judgement, to explore your thoughts and feelings.
What to expect from counselling
I know the thought of starting therapy can feel scary or daunting but I will make you feel as comfortable as possible. I will listen and accept you in a space that is free from judgement. Through acceptance, empathy and the therapeutic relationship, you will be able to experience the change you are wanting.
In our first session we can discuss your hopes and expectations for therapy. I will explain the boundaries of counselling and how I can work with you. Any questions you may have about the process are warmly welcomed. This is an opportunity for you to explore what you want from therapy.

BACP- British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy
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.
