About me

I am an experienced counsellor and can provide a space in which you can explore and process any painful thoughts or feelings.  Expressing difficult feelings can bring relief and increase your awareness of any limiting patterns of relating.   We can work together to decrease the volume of any inner critical voice and challenge any unhelpful core beliefs that you may have internalised due to past experience.  Increasing self-awareness can help an individual to  build the confidence and freedom to direct their life.

I have worked as an integrative counsellor since 2003 and have a wide range of experience in working with low self esteem,  depression, anxiety and abuse.

Training, qualifications & experience

I  trained as a integrative counsellor at the Minster Centre. I have a broad range of experience using the psychodynamic, person centred and other humanistic approaches. I have also trained in EMDR therapy which is an effective method to aid processing of traumatic experience. I have completed a hypnotherapy course for counsellors and psychotherapists which can be used as an additional tool to erase any limiting beliefs recorded in the subconscious mind.

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 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.
