About me

I named my practice, Compass Counselling, as sometimes we can feel a little lost in our lives. We all need some space and time to help find ourselves and potentially embark on some new and exciting directions. As your therapist, I will act as guide or compass, to help explore your way through the fog to a new horizon.

In light of the recent outbreak of Covid-19 and in accordance with current guidance from the British Government, I am currently seeing clients only online until further notice. Please contact me directly for availability.

Please contact me to arrange an initial call (at no cost or obligation) to discuss how we might take things forward, including a possible first face to face session.

Through our work together, you can have the much needed space to reflect and process where you are in your life, how you got there and importantly where you may want to go next.

The world can often feel incredibly hectic and overwhelming. Our work will provide a haven of stillness and reflection for you to take a breath and take stock of your life. I strongly believe we could all benefit from having this space. I know it has greatly helped me in my life.

I’ve worked successfully with a wide range of issues including burn-out at work, domestic abuse, panic attacks, anger management, social anxiety, grief and depression (to name but a few).

I don’t prescribe to one specific area, preferring to work with what you decide to bring to therapy, thereby embracing the wide diversity of issues which can arise out of our varied lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained as an integrative, transpersonal psychotherapist.

I trained at CCPE (the largest training centre for Transpersonal psychotherapy in the UK). My training lasted six years and during this, I worked for various different charities as a counsellor/ support worker including Victim Support and Mind. I also worked as a volunteer counsellor at a women’s centre in Kingston for 5 years.

The official qualification I have is a diploma in counselling and psychotherapy. This diploma is accredited by the BACP and UKCP (see below for info on these two organisations). Plus I have a Certificate in the Foundations of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am a registered member of BACP and an accredited member of UKCP.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.
