About me

I have a long career working with those struggling to make sense of their difficulties. The decision to start therapy can be challenging, I therefore provide a space where your experiences can be explored in a compassionate, confidential and collaborative way. At a time when it seems hard to make sense of things in your life that are causing you distress this can be difficult and life can feel unfulfilling.


As an integrative therapist I am trained to work across several different modalities meaning that in our sessions together I will utilise what is required based on your individual needs. We will usually begin by exploring what brings you to therapy now and how you can begin to make sense of thoughts, patterns and difficult feelings you experience.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and therefore adhere to the high standards and ethical code of practice of my organisation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed an Integrative training and am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

I have worked with issues including but not limited to stress, anxiety, depression, complex needs, learning disabilities, dual diagnosis, abuse, parental conflict, personality disorders and learning disabilities.

As an integrative therapist I am trained to work across several different modalities meaning that in our sessions together I will utilise what is required based on your individual needs and what suits our therapeutic relationship.

I support clients experiencing a range of difficulties and I have a particular interest in exploring cultural issues, trans-generational family themes, adapting to parenthood, neurodiversity (including Dyslexia, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Autism), mixed nationality/interfaith marriage and/or parenting.

Member organisations

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.

Fees

Initial Consultation

Once you have made contact I will arrange with you to have a brief no obligation telephone call to discuss your needs and the possibility of meeting for an assessment session. If we should decide that an initial session is appropriate we can book this in. The session will last for 50 minutes and be at a cost of £40.

Weekly sessions

Should we decide to continue to work together all future sessions will last for 50 minutes and are once a week, usually at the same time. It is possible to meet more frequently should we feel that this would be beneficial.

I charge £60 per session, I have some concessionary places/sliding fees available - feel free to ask if your financial situation means you require this.

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.
