About me

As a counsellor I strive to create a safe, receptive environment so that my clients can address their problems with a feeling of security and trust. I believe that by creating a climate of trust clients can reach a deeper level of insight and awareness from which their problems can be addressed. Above all, I am open to the possibilities that counselling can offer and believe that the suffering that brings someone to counselling presents an opportunity for personal growth and psychological development. Prior to becoming a counsellor I taught yoga for ten years and I have been a dedicated practitioner of mindfulness for over twenty five years. While I draw on a variety of different methods including dreamwork, my primary method is to listen to each client and help them discover their best possibilities.

If you are at all interested in what you have read so far, please take a look at my personal website to get a more complete picture of my approach.

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.
