I am an experienced qualified therapist working in private practice from my home in Rogate near Petersfield.
I am also able to offer a mobile service where I work with you in your own home.
Many of us can benefit, at difficult times in our lives, from having the space to talk to someone who listens without judging. Sharing an emotional difficulty in a safe and secure environment can bring real relief.
I work in line with the principles of the person centred approach this means that I will accept you as the unique individual that you are,and have absolute faith in your ability to grow and reach your potential.All work will be led by your needs.You will not be expected to move faster than you feel safe to, or in any direction you have not chosen for yourself.
I aim to build relationships with clients that are based upon mutual respect, honesty and trust.
I engage with ongoing personal and professional development which enables me to keep up to date with new developments, and have a deeper understanding of clients needs.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and work in line with their code of conduct.
I have been CRB checked and hold an enhanced CRB certificate.
I am fully insured.

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
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
From £20.00 to £40.00
Free initial in-person session
Concessions offered for
£20/hr - £40/hr (Depending on financial circumstances)
I offer a free 30min first session, which will be used to see if we can work together, this also gives us the opportunity to discuss what our journey may involve.
Because emotional pressure can seem very intense and immediate, I aim to see new clients within a week of first contact.
If I am unable to speak to you personally, please leave a message and contact number, and I will return your call.
All messages are retained in a confidential voice mail box.
