About me

Hello! I am a home-based counsellor and clinical supervisor working from a small village just outside of Uppingham. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and carry comprehensive insurance. Although predominantly person-centred, I have a degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and work integratively to my clients needs.

I firmly believe that our feelings inform our thoughts and that negative feelings can disrupt our lives and of those around us. By using integrative counselling techniques, I help my clients to enhance and maintain their self by growing and learning to accept difficult aspects of their lives. I offer a non-judgmental and empathic environment, where the caring and confidential* relationship between client and counsellor is key to enhancing the client’s autonomy and self-worth.

​I am qualified to work with young people and adults experiencing difficulties such as depression, suicidal thoughts, problems in the work place, eating disorders, substance misuse, family and relationship difficulties, divorce and bereavement. All of my clients** are asked to sign a contract setting out our working agreement and clarifying my boundaries and ethical obligations.

I am also qualified and happy to work with organisations to provide time limited counselling or longer term periods to deal with trauma in the work place. Please contact me to discuss assessment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a BSc. (hons) in Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic Approaches, a level four diploma in Therapeutic Person Centred Counselling, a level four Diploma in Counselling Children and Adolescents (encompassing co-dependency and dysfunction) and a level four Diploma in Stress Counselling in the Workplace.

I have a background in the Criminal Justice System and until recently was the Head of Counselling at a category C male prison.

I work with addiction, childhood abuse, bereavement, depression, alcohol and substance addiction and many other issues that affect day to day lives.

I take GP and CAMHS referrals and often work with children that have been involved with CAFCASS and the court system. I offer family support where a breakdown in parental relationships may be adversely affecting a child/children.

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.
