About me

I offer confidential counselling in the warm and welcoming location of my private counselling practice based in Denmead near Portsmouth.

I work with adults of all ages who have different psychological needs.  I utilize my experience in health care, as a nurse, to support my counselling practice with clients when needed.  I work therapeutically with clients who seek counselling for a variety of reasons including:-

  • Anxiety, and depression.
  • Stress.
  • Suicidal thoughts.
  • Bereavement and coping with loss and grief.
  • Adult students in education experiencing exam stress or studying related anxiety.
  • Women's health issues throughout their life cycle e.g. birth to menopause.
  • Individuals or groups with long-term chronic health conditions including those that may be life-limiting.
  • Patients that were hospitalised with COVID 19 or relatives of such patients.

My 25 years of experience in critical care health settings and more recently in a GP practice means I am able to offer counselling support to clients that are experiencing psychological distress as a result of ICU admission or a health-related illness. Such distress may include anxiety, pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, or psychological distress associated with physical health conditions e.g. long-term chronic or ongoing conditions.

If you are ready to take the next steps please make contact through your preferred means of either email or telephone call, text, or through my website contact page at mapletreetherapy.org.uk

If I am unable to speak to you in person when you call, please leave a message on the confidential voicemail and I will return your call.

I aim to respond to all emails and messages as soon as possible and within 24 hours.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

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.

My private practice is located on the ground floor and has a doorway that is wide enough to accommodate a standard size wheelchair measuring 68cms wide at its maximum.
