About me

I have a background working with families, groups and individuals in various helping roles for over 20 years. I describe myself as a relational psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor as I believe that the relationship is the most important aspect to successful therapeutic work. I practice integratively drawing upon the most relevant approach for a particular client at that particular time. I have specialist training in sexual and domestic abuse, loss, bereavement and trauma. I work with individuals, couples and young people, and take referrals from Insurance companies, EAP’s, several agencies and the general public. I work face to face in my practice or at a client’s home, online or via telephone. I do offer a limited amount of concessions for students, or those in receipt of certain benefits.

I am also able to offer appointments within 48 hours
(excluding weekends & bank holidays)

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.

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.

The practice rooms in Portishead are ground floor and disabled accessible, however the rooms in Clifton are not.
