About me

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, working with adults in Amersham. I offer weekly sessions for both short and open ended periods in a warm, comfortable and confidential environment.

How can counselling help?

I believe that by talking in a safe, empathetic, quiet and non-judgemental space, we can make effective changes in our lives and enhance our well-being, so that life feels less difficult and better understood.

There are times when we all experience emotional and psychological difficulty. We can feel overwhelmed and sometimes life can feel unmanageable, we all feel the need to 'off load'.

I believe that we all have the capacity to change and the opportunity to manage and explore  unresolved issues and conflicts with counselling can reduce anxiety and difficulties, leading to experiencing a more fulfilled life.

I work from a 'psychodynamic' perspective which recognises that current difficulties can be linked to earlier life experiences. It is the understanding of the origins of these difficulties that can be helpful as they impact on us in the present.

If you feel that you would like to explore the possibility of counselling or  psychotherapy with me, then please telephone or email me and I will contact you to arrange a consultation. An initial consultation takes about 50 minutes and is an opportunity for us to talk together about what might be helpful to you. Ongoing sessions are weekly and are also for 50 minutes.

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.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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
