I am a qualified counsellor (BACP registered), trained in Humanistic counselling (TA), currently available for face-to-face (in Hursley or Rownhams) or online counselling sessions.
I offer a safe, warm, non-judgemental, confidential space to explore any issues you choose to bring to our sessions. I see my role as helping and supporting you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your relationships and your world. If as a result, you feel would like to make changes, we can work together towards that aim.
For me, fundamental to successful counselling is the relationship formed between myself and my client which at its heart is founded on mutual respect, empathy and trust.

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.
Accredited register membership
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I currently have face-to-face appts on Tuesdays and will shortly have a room in the Rownhams area on Wednesday mornings and Thursdays. I have more availability online, so please do ask.
I work online and face-to-face.
On Tuesdays I run my sessions from my beautiful bell tent over looking fields at the bottom of my garden in Hursley. The bell tent is large, 6metres in width, with a cozy log burning stove and a comfy sofas and chairs.
On Wednesday mornings and Thursdays 8am-8pm I will shortly be offering counselling sessions from a gorgeous counselling room in a georgian country house between Romsey and Southampton.
Please do contact me if you'd like more information.
