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)

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.
