About me

I am a Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor with 18 years experience, I practice in High Wycombe Buckinghamshire and Little Venice London.
I am also a staff member at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education where I supervise and facilitate trainee Psychotherapsits.
I also carry out assessments and interviews for the Center. I also run the foundation training year for CCPE.

My work is integrative meaning I pull on various styles of therapy to fit the client/s. I offer long term and short term work and I offer parking.

I work from the heart and offer a safe and holding environment.

Feeling stuck or alone with ones pain can seem all consuming with no way to turn, help is available and freedom can be achieved.

When considering counselling or psychotherapy it can often feel daunting and rather depressing, humor is vital in the process of healing and can often be present when working, all that is required is a willingness to explore and understand ones life, and make changes when and where appropriate.

What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy assists clients in gaining insight into the difficulties or issues they are currently facing, helping to establish a greater understanding of their motivations and behaviors, enabling them to find more appropriate ways of coping or to bring about change in their life. Psychotherapy explores feelings, beliefs, thoughts and behaviors, which can include childhood, personal or spiritual issues.

What happens during therapy?
Sessions are different for each client, depending on the material, it is therefore difficult to say exactly what will happen. During the work together a relationship is built providing a container for the client to explore their issues in a safe, holding enviroment.

How long does therapy last?
Each client is unique, it is therefore difficult to say how many sessions will be required. Some people have a specific issue they wish to address, while others are interested in looking at all corners of their life to find a deeper understanding of who they are, either way, a time limit is never set, the client decides when they are ready to leave therapy.
Depending on the individual case clients may choose to work short term or long term, this can be discussed in the assessment.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
