In using a 'here and now' approach I work responsively and sensitively to my clients needs. I am committed to creating a safe space based on trust, integrity, respect and confidentiality. My clients' work is at the heart of our therapeutic relationship.
In my role as a pyschotherapist, I bring my experience of working with a wide range of people. I have worked in banking and as a Chartered Accountant for over twenty years and have extensive experience of working with teams and individuals.
Currently, I am working in the field of pregnancy issues, including loss and infertility. I continue my personal and professional development and training at Spectrum, a centre for humanistic psychotherapy in North London.
Born in Jamaica I came to the UK aged 7 and I am the mother of 2 young adults.
Training, qualifications & experience
Post Graduate of Psychotherapy I graduated from the Spectrum Training programme which is a United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) member organisation. I abide by their code of ethics and practice (www.spectrumtherapy.co.uk).
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
