About me

Sometimes life can seem difficult, we might be feeling sad, unhappy or uncertain and we can struggle to find our way in life. That's when talking it through in a safe, supportive, non-judgemental space can really help us to find our way forward more clearly.

Together we can explore these difficult feelings to help gain insight and understanding of how things are for you, and to look at how you might like them to be moving forward.

Working with you at the centre of the therapeutic process I offer warmth, acceptance and a safe space to explore how things are for you, a place where you can feel valued and respected.

As an Integrative Counsellor, which means my training has covered several different models of therapy, I am able to work with you to find a way of working that's right for you, this may include looking at how we interact with others, or how the patterns of our past affects how we are today.

As well as my private practice my experience includes:- the mental heath charity Mind, the bereavement charity Cruse and local schools and family centres. I work with adults and young people from my counselling room located near Whitchurch, within easy reach of Aylesbury, Buckingham and Bicester.

Taking that decision to contact a counsellor can seem huge, that's why I offer a free, no obligation, initial session of 30 minutes, a chance for you to see if working with me feels like the right step forward for you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
