About me

I am a qualified and accredited BACP and HCPC registered Integrative Counsellor and Arts Psychotherapist with over 25 years’ experience working therapeutically with children, young people and adults. I offer short and long term counselling and therapy for young people, adults and couples.

Being an integrative therapist means that I am trained in a variety of different psychotherapeutic theories and techniques such as transactional analysis, gestalt, psychoanalytic theories and creative therapies. I also work as an emotionally focused couples therapist. This varied skills set and theoretical knowledge means that I can tailor my approach to suit your particular needs.

I aim to provide you with a safe, confidential and accepting environment where a respectful and trusting therapeutic relationship can be established. Irrespective of my theoretical approach I consider the therapeutic relationship as the keystone to my work. Through this I will work collaboratively with you to help and support you in exploring whatever is concerning you so that you can identify any patterns that may be being repeated and find your way forward to a more content and happy way of living your life. 

My work has been with people of all ages and abilities. As well as working in private practice I have worked in schools, hospitals, hospices, family centres, for charitable organisations and in training centres.

To find out more about my work and whether I am the right therapist for you, please visit my website www.circleofsupport.co.uk or contact me by telephone to have a chat and to find out if you would like to arrange an initial session.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

HCPC

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Fees

Initial meeting:

An initial meeting of approximately 30 minutes is offered, which costs £30.

This will be a time to meet each other and find out if I'm the right therapist for you. Sometimes during this initial meeting it comes to light that you may be better placed with a different therapist with a particular area of expertise. If this is the case I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

Session fee:

Individual sessions cost £60 (some concessions available)
Couples sessions cost from £80

Sessions are 50 minutes long for individuals and 60 minutes for couples. You will not be charged for missed or cancelled sessions if you give 48 hours notice. I will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible if I am unable to keep an appointment, and in that instance no fee will be charged.

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.
