About 'In The Right Place'...

I am an Integrative Counsellor whose particular interests include the psychology of attachment, early trauma and the role of loss and how these may continue to impact upon the present. I currently work with adults on behalf of the NHS Let’s Talk service, Cruse Bereavement Care as well as in private practice. I also have experience of working with younger people aged 16+ in a school setting.

I have been gaining academic and vocational experience of counselling since 2008 and I studied for 3 years in Bath at a counselling and psychotherapy training institution (BCPC) which is accredited with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I continue to be committed to a regular programme of continued professional development and training, for example in Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) for improving self confidence and reducing shame, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Younger People, and Stress Management. 

I am listed on the BACP Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists which is a quality-assured scheme set up by the Department of Health. As a Member of the BACP I abide by their recognised Code of Ethics. I am bound by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy as set out by the BACP and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure therein.

Session Information...

An initial session provides us both the opportunity of deciding whether or not working together is appropriate at this time. There is no obligation to continue the counselling beyond this session if you decide it isn’t for you, however if an agreement is made to continue, we would usually meet once a week for as long as it feels therapeutically valuable to do so.

We can work short or longer-term depending on your needs and will agree on the goals and focus of our work together, for example, some clients prefer a more practical, solution focussed approach and others require more space to explore and reflect.

All information disclosed by you, the client, is treated as confidential. There may be rare occasions when confidentiality has to be broken and we will discuss this further at the initial session.

Sessions last 50 minutes and are arranged at a mutually convenient date and time each week should we agree to work together. My standard fee for individuals is £45 per session, however I am able to and do offer reduced price sessions so please do not hesitate to enquire if this is unaffordable to you.
