About me

1:1 counselling/psychotherapy; small therapeutic groups.

The Connection Space works with people by developing a deep foundation of trust, integrity and respect, shaping a safe place to creatively explore common human experiences that may be causing difficulty - fear, sadness, worry, loss, inner conflict, relationship difficulties, trauma etc. Young and older people can access this service.

Integrative counselling techniques are utilised and adapted to suit individual needs. The opportunity to explore issues at a psychodynamic level are also available. This might involve considering "history in the present", childhood experiences and relationships; the internal and external relationships we all have; and patterns that appear to re-occur in our lives.

Signposting to other services and sharing of resources is a key part of the service. Developing resources to sell/share to other practitioners.

Member organisations


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.

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.
