About me

We are all living in intense and challenging times. You may be one of those working on the Covid front line or have suddenly lost a loved one to the virus. You may be someone struggling to keep things going at home, juggling responsibilities. You may be feeling a sense of lost freedom, that life is not panning out as you thought it would.

In uncertain times like these, anxiety levels are naturally high and our nervous systems are stretched and stressed.  As a result, self-esteem can plummet and unhealthy patterns of behaviour can re-emerge. Without our social and physical connections, we can also feel isolated and trapped and sometimes very low.

How can I help?

Understanding why we feel the way we do and how we can support ourselves is something that talking therapy can help with. Whether you want counselling support with immediate worries and fears or whether you want a deeper more psychotherapeutic and body focused exploration of yourself, I can offer a therapeutic space to match your needs.

I am a registered, fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I have worked in many different areas both in and out of the NHS mental health system including anxiety, depression, trauma and bereavement with extensive experience of working with young people and the multitude of challenges faced by this age group.

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and member of the BACP and abide by both the UKCP and BACP ethical guidelines.  All sessions are confidential and currently held online due to Covid restrictions. However, if you are local and enjoy being outside, I also offer a walking talking therapy service from my home.  This is a more immersive experience, offering an alternative way of looking at how we can support and understand ourselves as an integral part of the natural world, together with the benefits of being out in the countryside.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Clinical Diploma and an MSc in Contemporary Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Application from the Metanoia Institute in London.

I have been working in counselling and psychotherapy for 11 years. During this time I spent 6 years working with young people in the NHS mental health system which gave me a broad range of experience with mental health issues in the 12 - 24 age group.

I also spent 3 years in bereavement work at Woking Hospice and at Petersfield Counselling Services working with domestic and sexual abuse, alongside working in private practice with young adults at my home in Witley.

Member organisations

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.
