About me

Welcome to my page.  I hope you find all the information you need here. If not, do send me an e-mail or give me a call.  You may also find more information on my website.

I take a humanistic approach to counselling, so I believe you have the power to make choices, to change and to grow within a nurturing yet challenging relationship.  The theory base that I use is Transactional Analysis (TA), which looks at what goes on in our behaviour, thinking and feeling, and how that affects our relationship with ourselves and with others.

TA is a very common-sense, practical approach which can help with recurring patterns and problems that somebody might experience, looking underneath the surface and helping with, for example, anxiety, depression and relationship issues.

My counselling space is quiet, private and and safe.  We would start with a free 30 minute discussion on what you need and and how we can work together. Further sessions will be 50 minutes. I am happy to see you short term or long term.  The usual basis for short term work is 6 weeks.

We can meet during the day or evening on a weekday, or a Saturday morning, and appointments are usually at the same time each week. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a full member of the BACP since February 2012 and abide by its code of ethics. 

My Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis was awarded in July 2011. I also hold a BSc in Psychology which was awarded in 1999.  I keep updated by attending training courses, reading, and taking part in local professional networking events.

I work for an agency in Southampton, where I have been counselling for three years.  Before that, for five years I was a volunteer counsellor in a bereavement service and at a university.  I also had a part time role for eight years in a local charity providing advice, advocacy and support to unpaid carers.

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.
