About me

I am an experienced counsellor and couples therapist supporting my clients’ own abilities to make choices that are right for them.  I offer a trusting, non judgemental relationship that values uniqueness, where individuals and couples find a deeper understanding of themselves and those around them.

When supporting couples, I draw upon a successful researched based model.  I gently guide you through a structured process which reduces conflict and distress and facilitates a closer connection between you.

I offer online counselling, home visits within a 10 mile radius of RH14 0TY or ly I have premises in Ifold, near Loxwood where in a calm and confidential environment you have the freedom to express your thoughts, feelings and emotions.  You can be assured I will receive you with empathic understanding and without judgement. This experience can be immensely reassuring and often gives a different perspective that can lead to greater life fulfilment.

Wherever you are in your journey, counselling can help strengthen your inner resources and confidence helping you to feel more positive.  Whether you wish to stay together or separate, couples therapy can provide the support you need.

I offer supervision in Ifold, near Loxwood or home visits within a 10 mile radius of RH14 0TY.  Online supervision is also available.

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.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
