About me

Everyone experiences emotional difficulties at some time in their life and the feelings accompanying any changes can be extremely hard to cope with.  You may feel panic and out of control; friends are supportive but can't really help.

Counselling and psychotherapy are a specific form of support involving talking or not talking, usually on a regular basis, preferably weekly, where you have a chance to express your inner world in relation to your daily life. Together we explore difficulties and problems, celebrate joyous events and help you put your difficulties in a context where you are able to move forward.  The ways in which I work can include deep listening to your story, exploration, imagination, art/play process.

The first meeting we have is without charge so that we can get to meet face to face and discuss what issues you are facing and whether I think I can help you and whether you would like to work with me.

How to get started? Please feel free to email me or telephone my mobile and leave a message. I generally respond within 24 hours and I aim to offer you an appointment within seven days. If, when we meet, we aren't a good fit for each other, I will do my best to recommend you to a suitably qualified colleague.

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.
