About me

I offer short term counselling and longer term psychotherapy from my private practice in Stroud, Gloucestershire for Individuals and for Couples.

Short term Individual Counselling is helpful for managing Anxiety, Stress and Depression where we can explore your feelings and work on tools to make changes; short term work is interventionist and I draw on a CBT and Solution Focussed approach to identify patterns and make changes.

The longer term  and often open-ended Psychotherapeutic work tends toward more self-exploration and gives us the time and space to explore some of those uncomfortable feelings and processes at a pace that you are comfortable with.

I work with Couples and have undergone a graduate qualification with Relate and work for Relate as an Associate Counsellor and in Private Practice. Together we can explore the difficulties you are experiencing in your relationship and work toward making changes.

My therapy room is discreet, bright and comfortable with ample parking nearby and easy access to public transport; I work from a dedicated therapy room at Chedworth House, Lansdown, in central Stroud.

I work with and have experience of working with a range of issues including:

Anxiety

Depression

Anger

Bereavement

Employment difficulties

Low self-esteem

Relationship difficulties (individual and couples)

Separation and divorce

Sexuality

Bullying

Stress

Trauma

I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and adhere to their code of ethics for safe and ethical practice. I am also involved in regular CPD, Peer Group and have regular Supervision. I am fully insured.

I am passionate about Mental Health and it's de-stimagisation and am committed to improving the lives of people through developing self-awareness.

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.

Accredited register membership
