I am an experienced (BACP Registered and Accredited), compassionate and approachable counsellor, providing counselling based on respect, trust and sensitivity. I provide a safe space to reflect upon and explore your personal issues at your pace.

Using my wide range of qualifications, I use different skills and theories to tailor counselling to your individual needs. Theories include CBT, TA, person-centred counselling, Sandtray and other creative approaches.

You may be anxious, depressed, bereaved, angry, stressed, confused, experiencing suicidal feelings, having relationship or family difficulties, lack confidence or self - esteem and any of these painful feelings alone can leave you feeling overwhelmed. I have experience of helping clients with this range of issues and more and have empowered many people by helping them make sense of what is happening and enabled them to make the changes they need to move forward, feeling more able to cope.

In addition to private practice, I work as a Counsellor with children at St Andrews Church School in Taunton and have previous experience a counsellor working with young people in two local secondary schools. I also work with a number of Employee Assistance Providers helping employees in brief therapy.

I charge a rate of £40 per session. I also offer a free introductory session and some concessions.


Qualifications:

  • MBACP (Accred)
  • Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling
  • Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Diploma Counselling Children & Young People
  • Diploma in Midwifery (no longer practising)
  • B.A. Hons.

As a member of the BACP I work within BACP's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. As part of my ongoing accreditation and registration requirements I attend supervision on a monthly basis which I view as an essential and valuable way of safeguarding and developing my practice. I also undertake regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to keep my skills and knowledge up to date.
