We can all experience times in life when we feel low, lost or overwhelmed by events. We may be afraid to go on, or have no wish to go on, or not know where we are going. I offer a time and space to explore what is troubling you, safely and in confidence, helping you to find a way forward, at your own pace.
I am a registered counsellor (MBACP) working in Wellington and Taunton. My training has provided me with an integrative framework on which to base my work: this means I can use a range of therapeutic approaches, always adapting to the needs of the client. The particular nature of the individual and their circumstances are always at the heart of our work together.
I will agree with you at the outset whether we shall work without a limit on the number of sessions we have, or if we will work to a specific number, or if you would like to establish regular reviews.
I offer an initial free 30 minute meeting to ascertain whether we both feel can work effectively together. Please feel free to call or email me with any queries.
Training, qualifications & experience
Higher Diploma in Counselling Practice 2011
Registered Member of 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.
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
Other areas of counselling I deal with
In some cases clients may choose to have homeopathic support to assist the therapeutic work - for example, when dealing with anxiety, depression, chronic grief symptoms.
My fee per weekly 50 minute session is £40. A number of places at £32 or £25 are available depending on your circumstances. We will discuss this at our first 30 minute meeting which is free of charge.
Concessions offered for
Being centrally located in both Taunton and Wellington has proved useful for many clients. For present time I am working online with Zoom.
Having worked as a homeopath for many years I appreciate the unique character of each person, their life story and the particular way in which problems will manifest for them. In all my therapeutic work I respect this individuality and help clients reach solutions or resolutions tailored to their specific situation.
