I provide a warm and friendly, safe and confidential counselling experience for every client. I work flexibly and prefer to adapt my approach to suit your needs, rather than working to one particular counselling approach. I describe the way I work as “interpersonal”, that is to say, I work with you, your feelings and your own life experience.
I believe there are three stages to counselling; first you need to understand what you are feeling (emotions are complex and difficult to untangle), secondly you need to understand how you arrived at the place you currently find yourself (this might be about past or current events) and finally you need to find a way forward to truly be yourself, taking control of your life.
You have a right to be happy and to like yourself.
I am interested in helping people who feel stressed and anxious. I work with many people who feel stressed by their job and work situation and I have a particular interest in helping people who work as doctors, ministers of religion, teachers and social workers. However, I see clients from all walks of life, so please do not feel you need to be one of the above!
I am a qualified counsellor and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework. I see clients from the following areas: South Cambs, North Essex, East Herts, West Suffolk
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Counselling Practice (Dip. Couns.)
Mental Health First Aid (Standard)
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
