I offer online counselling using encrypted platforms including Zoom, Facetime and WhatsApp as well as face to face counselling in safe and comfortable settings located in Amersham and Aylesbury Vale, Buckinghamshire. I also offer walk and talk session within the local area, which is a great way to access counselling if you enjoy being outside with nature.
I am a Person-Centred counsellor, Gottman Couples Therapist and Family Counsellor. For further details on couples counselling please also visit www.relationshiphouse.co.uk. I also use horses within my therapeutic work, as an equine assisted counsellor. This form of therapy is particularly helpful for anxiety and clients with LD.
I volunteer at a local male prison supporting young offenders and also volunteer at my local Hospice, supporting family and friends going through loss and bereavement. I enjoy teaching and lecture at a local college teaching Level 2 and Level 3 counselling and also deliver online wellbeing training for Herts Mind Network.
I offer support with issues including anxiety and low mood as well as providing specialised and specific support for major life experiences such as relationship breakdown, bereavement, redundancy, changes in life direction, retirement, family issues, becoming a new parent, becoming a step-parent. I work with couples and families and am a member of BICA, working with issues of infertility.
Not all counselling work has to go back to the past and I am able to work with clients who wish to stay in the present and work through issues using solution-focused techniques.

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.
