About me

Face to face now available, socially distanced, in an outdoor countryside setting.

I offer counselling for adults in Buckingham and surrounding area.

Clients from further away can access sessions online via Zoom, or over the phone.

Where appropriate, I encourage my clients to take some of their counselling sessions outdoors, in a secure therapeutic space. Sometimes we walk and talk, sometimes we sit. This allows you, if you wish, to engage creatively with the therapeutic healing from nature to complement your therapy.

I worked as a volunteer for Carers MK as part of my training and have a particular interest in offering carer support.

I have full professional liability insurance and hold a current clear DBS certificate.

As lock down eases in person sessions are now available, socially distanced, in outdoor spaces. This is proving to be very effective, with some good outcomes.

I am happy to talk in whatever way you feel most at ease.

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.
