Deciding you would like to talk to someone about your thoughts, feelings and behaviour is a courageous decision. Finding the right therapist to do this with is very important. My name is Mia, I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and Supervisor. I aim to provide a safe and warm environment, where you can speak freely without fear of judgement.
So often in our lives we reach a place where we are struggling in some capacity or another. It may be a deep routed issue that goes back to childhood, a past relationship or trauma. It may be some destructive behaviour such as self harm or eating disorders. It may be a disordered or negative thought process that is current and having an impact in your daily life and functioning. Whatever the issue I believe counselling can help.
Having a place where you can allow yourself time and a calm space to think, talk and work things out with a skilled helper can be a very powerful and useful experience. Being able to unlock past experiences or possibly something you haven't been able to share with anyone and realize how it is affecting you. These and many other issues can be addressed in the therapy room.
Training, qualifications & experience
Following on from my Diploma in Counselling I went on to gain a BA (Hons) Degree in Professional Development in Counselling. I have been trained as an integrative counsellor, this means that I use many methods of working from different therapeutic backgrounds. Between us we can work out which ways of working would be the most effective for you, there is no one size fits all we are all unique therefore your therapy will be individual to you.
I am greatly aware of the possible anxiety surrounding our first meeting. I aim to be welcoming and put you quickly at ease. My role is not to judge you or tell you how to live. I am very committed to my clients and focused on our work together having a successful outcome for you.
I am also available for online sessions and telephone counselling, which can sometimes be easier if making regular face to face appointments is difficult for you.
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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I choose my continuous professional development very carefully and try to tailor it around the needs of my clients.
I have undertaken extensive training in psychosynthesis and often use elements of this in my work. This helps us to look at particular parts of our selves in order to gain insight and ultimatley apply this new understanding to our lives, thus improving our situation, issues, behaviours and emotions
