About me

A warm welcome to my practice,

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by life's events, alone with the choices that may confront you, or feel that you would like to talk to someone?

I offer warm, compassionate, non-judgemental counselling.  I provide a calm and peaceful space where all work is totally confidential.

I am a BACP Accredited counsellor with 19 years experience in Private Practice.

I believe that a good therapeutic relationship can enable you to explore, clarify or simply share issues that you are experiencing, and maybe make changes that could enhance your life.

I work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework.

I offer face to face counselling for individuals,  couples and young adults (18 onwards). I am happy to work on a short term or long term basis, which we can discuss in our initial session.

As well as face to face counselling, I can provide telephone counselling after an initial face to face session.

My areas of interest are: Bereavement, Depression, Anxiety, Identity, Self-esteem, Redundancy, Loss of any kind, Relationship problems, Health, Stress and Work related issues.

I have extensive experience with issues around disability, such as self-esteem, difficulties with relationships caused by disability, or a feeling of living in a different world to everybody else and being misunderstood.

My initial training was at the Wealden Institute in Crowborough and my core theoretical model is person centred/integrative.

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)

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.
