About me

My training is in the Gestalt approach. Gestalt is a term which refers to the concept of 'wholeness'. In terms of working with you this means that I believe that the whole of your experience is important. Your thoughts, emotions, behaviours, bodily sensations are the unique 'you'.

My approach  is based on us developing a therapeutic relationship. I will provide a warm, supportive environment and will work with you to build on your resources to find new ways to resolve problems or face difficulties or take on new challenges in your life.

Sometimes circumstances or life experiences may lead  us into making choices which are unsatisfying or uncomfortable, or  lead us  into fixed patterns of behaviour which are distressing or stop us from achieving what we need. If you want to make changes in your life, I will support you and work alongside you to explore the choices that you make and your options for change.

  If you feel that you have  unfinished business from the past, which affects how you are in the world, or how you  feel about yourself or your relationship with others. I will work with you  to explore what you need from this and how you can achieve your needs in order to live a happier and more satisfying life in the present and as you move forward in the future.

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.

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.
