About me

I offer a safe and confidential space where you can explore your issues

… for individuals, couples and families in the Cheltenham area

Do you need someone to talk to?

The chances are if you are reading this you have reached a point in your life where things are getting on top of you.

People seek counselling for all sorts of reasons. Perhaps you are having problems in your relationship and looking for someone to help. It’s possible that you are feeling anxious, sad, depressed, lack confidence and / or have issues with self-esteem. Or perhaps you’ve suffered a trauma, and are finding it hard to deal with. You might just be wondering what makes you tick and what makes you who you are.

Here are some of the specific issues that bring people to counselling:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Stress at work
  • Issues around bullying
  • Relationship problems
  • Panic attacks
  • Anger
  • Sexuality
  • Adoption / Identity
  • Suicidal feelings
  • Feelings of emptiness
  • Self-esteem and confidence issues
  • Trauma

We are all different, with our unique personalities, life stories and concerns. In a nutshell, counselling is for anyone who wants to talk things through and who wishes to feel differently about himself/herself.

What to expect

Counselling offers an opportunity to meet regularly with an experienced counsellor to talk through the issues that may be upsetting you. The space is quiet and private. You will be met with empathy and understanding, and listened to in a non judgmental way.

The counselling I provide is based on listening, reflecting, and making links between past and present in the belief that by looking at our past experiences we can better understand why we behave as we do in the present. It is hoped that this quiet, supportive, safe space can help you think about your life, about who you are, to grieve, to heal, to see things from a different perspective, and to enable change.

I offer open-ended counselling for individuals, couples and adolescents, as well as time-limited counselling, where the amount of sessions is agreed at the beginning.

Sessions last 50 minutes and are weekly.

Is it confidential?

Yes, my service is completely confidential. It is important that you feel free and able to talk about your issues. I adhere to the BACP Framework of Ethics.

Training, qualifications & experience

As an experienced accredited counsellor I can offer you a safe, confidential space in which to help make sense whatever is troubling you.

I have worked for Gloucestershire Counselling Service (GCS) for several years in Cheltenham, Gloucester and Stroud. I qualified from GCS with a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (awarded by Westminster Pastoral Foundation, WPF), and a degree in Psychodynamic Counselling (awarded by the University of the West of England).

After graduating, I took a post-graduate Associate Year in Psychodynamic Counselling (GCS), and gained further training in Couples Counselling, and Time-Limited Therapy.

I am a qualified supervisor (Robin Shohet) and supervise groups and individuals.

I am an Accredited Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

I believe that everyone is different, and their stories and past histories are unique to them. I am happy to consider helping anyone who feels that things aren’t right in their world.

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.

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

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.
