About me

I’m an integrative counsellor and trainee counselling psychologist and psychotherapist based in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire - here to guide you through life’s most complex and difficult matters.

Since 2008, I have provided a number of specialised therapeutic services to those dealing with challenging life experiences. Client well-being is my number one priority, and I go above and beyond to help them through all their obstacles.

What do I offer?

Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, stress, grief, low mood, addiction, anxiety, or major life changes? Perhaps you have contemplated seeking support or a safe space to explore your thoughts, experiences and emotions. Whatever your story, it has somehow led you here today. I’m a Psychotherapist based in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. I’m here to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions, I promote behavioural transformation by exploring the events that have led you to where you are now and encouraging the adoption of new attitudes and reactions.

If you’re looking for quality Individual Therapy sessions, face-to-face or via online (zoom or skype) or telephone, then you’ve come to the right place. I support my clients every step of the way and implement various methods to help them develop new attitudes towards all of life’s most complex matters.

What happens in therapy?

After an initial consultation, we will meet at the same time and place each week for 50 minutes. We may meet for a pre-determined length of time, or on an open-ended basis. We can decide this during the initial consultation.

My work is influenced by a variety of therapeutic approaches: relational psychodynamic therapy, compassion-based therapy, person-centred therapy and affective neuroscience.

I enable an atmosphere in which a therapeutic relationship can develop and flourish, whilst also providing the insight needed for therapeutic change to occur.

Do you offer online or telephone counselling?

Yes, I offer sessions using platforms such as skype, zoom and telephone counselling for those who are unable to readily access the internet.

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.

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.
