About me

We can often feel overwhelmed. especially in the current climate of social media pressures and more recently feelings of isolation being high on our minds with the affect of Covid.

I provide a safe, quiet space for you to explore any aspects of your world or issues you may be having.  I am passionate in the belief that you are the expert on you and you hold the answers within yourself to reach for the stars you are aiming at.  My part is to walk alongside you as we explore this and to support you to find the right path to live your most authentic life.

I can help you to spot patterns of behaviour you may not have noticed and help to realise and widen your choices in life.

I work with many issues such as addictions, anxiety, self-harm, abuse, relationship issues and trauma.  You may just be experiencing general feelings of stress.  No issue is too trivial if it is important to you.

Our focus can be short or long term to meet your individual needs.

I work in Finchampstead, in a quiet and peaceful environment with no distractions to help you to relax, focus and gain all you can in your sessions.

Within a short drive from Wokingham, Barkham, Crowthorne, Sandhurst, Yateley, Eversley, Fleet and Arborfield with free onsite parking.

In our session you can explore and express your thoughts and feelings in a compassionate and non-judgemental environment.

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.

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.
