About me

I am a BACP  accredited counsellor and qualified counselling supervisor with over 12 years experience. I passionately believe counselling should be accessible to all, not just the wealthiest in our society. I aim to provide more affordable counselling and psychotherapy for individuals and couples who are experiencing a wide range of emotional, social and relationship difficulties. I offer a free face to face 20 minute consultation to help you decide if working with me could be helpful to you. 

Human beings are naturally social creatures, however, I believe society is becoming more and more isolated and disconnected. Therefore,  I believe face-to-face counselling is more effective than remote counselling. I have come to recognise the value and importance of body language and emotional connection. In my experience as a counsellor, I trust that sitting with someone in person is much more beneficial for a clients emotional development and growth. For this reason, I only offer face-to-face counselling.

Its important for you to to feel happy and comfortable, but  also feel able to end counselling at any time without penalty if you decide its not working for you.  

My counselling practice offers a comfortable space in Chandlers Ford. My aim is to create a peaceful space and provide a safe non-judgemental environment for you to come and talk freely about any concerns or difficulties. Talking through problems or concerns can help clarify and untangle mixed emotions which might be causing anxiety, stress or depression. I have many years experience working with adults, students and young people who are experiencing emotional, academic and relationship issues.

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.

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.

Further information

Why choose counselling?

Sometimes, it can be difficult to talk to family or friends, who might be too emotionally involved, or just simply unable to offer the right support for you and your needs. Therefore, allowing yourself the time and space to explore your feelings with an impartial professional, can alleviate some of the pressures one might experience within personal relationships.

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.
