About me

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist.  Drawing on various approaches including person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy, I can be flexible in responding to your individual needs. I have 20 years experience working in the health and well-being sector. Currently, along with my private counselling practice, I work 3 days a week in palliative care.

How I work

I aim to create a safe and confidential space where you are able to access and express your feelings, where you will be heard, won’t be judged and can fully explore the ecology of your life.

I work collaboratively with you to bring aspects of yourself and your behaviour into awareness and to explore the factors that could be influencing your current experience. This process enables you to gain a different perspective on elements of your life that may be causing you distress or making you feel stuck, can help you to evaluate your experience differently and empower you to move forward towards your goals and a more harmonious existence.

Please call or email me and we can talk about what you want to get out of counselling, I can answer any questions and, if you are happy to move forward, we can arrange to work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters from the University of Roehampton in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have 20 years experience in the health and well-being sector and currently work in palliative care at St. Joseph's Hospice, as Lead Complementary Therapist.

Prior to that, I worked in the business for over 10 years.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I attend regular supervision and participate in continued professional development.

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.

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.
