About me

I offer a warm, empathic, non-judgmental and confidential space for you to talk about whatever issues or feelings you may be struggling with. I am currently working online by video or telephone with adult clients aged 18 or over on an individual one to one basis. Sessions last for 50 minutes and usually take place weekly. I will offer face to face counselling again to those who are able to travel to my practice once it is safe to do so.

I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor who is a Registered and Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy offering both long term and short term counselling based on your individual needs. I will draw on different ideas and approaches to help you find your way forward with whatever it is that is bringing you to seek counselling.

First steps

I appreciate that taking that first step towards receiving help can often be the most difficult and daunting. To begin with we can meet for an initial consultation where we can explore what is bringing you into counselling, check out whether it is appropriate for us to work together and I can explain in more detail how counselling works. As for all sessions my fee is £45.  We can discuss any concessionary requirements when you first make contact.

How to make an appointment

To get in touch to make an appointment please contact me confidentially on my mobile where you can leave a message if you need to or if you prefer you can send me an email via my website. I am happy for you to contact me if you have any queries or questions about counselling.

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.

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.

Accessibility

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.
