About me

I am an integrative therapist that qualified in 2008 and I’ve worked with a wide range of clients with diverse presenting issues. I also have 14 years experience of working with adults presenting with historic, childhood sexual abuse. I am fully insured and have regular supervision.

I have a passion to help those who feel defeated, but haven't quite learnt the tools to overcome.

Not everybody is the same and therefore each person is treated as a unique individual using a variety of modalities. These will be tailored to suit you according to your needs.

The working alliance (counselling relationship) is very important to me as this is key in helping to achieve your goals. I therefore initially use the Person Centred approach to create a safe, non-judgemental, contained, therapeutic space for you and will work at your pace. I then combine this with other modalities.

The modalities that I use are Person Centred, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Solution Focused.

I provide help if you are suffering with, but not limited to the list below:

  • Lack of confidence and low self-esteem
  • Relationship issues
  • Stress related and social problems
  • Trauma
  • Abuse emotional, childhood and sexual
  • Child related issues
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Fears, phobias and anger related issues

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an Advanced Diploma in Parks Inner Child Therapy (Dip. PICT), a Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and a BACP Accredited Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling.

Other qualifications consist of Certificates in Couples Therapy, Grief, Bereavement & Loss, Working with Children and Young People, Play Therapy and Complex Trauma, PTSD & Dissociation to name but a few.

I have experience of providing both short term (6 - 12 weeks) and long term therapy, as I have worked within the NHS IAPT service and I also provide counselling for a charity that specialises in trauma and childhood sexual abuse. I have experience of working with young people as I provide counselling in a secondary school and I am listed as a Couple's Therapist with the Prepare / Enrich organisation and as a Parks Inner Child Therapist on the Penny Parks website.

I am a registered member of both the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Association Of Christian Counsellors (ACC).

Member organisations

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.

ACC

Association for Christian Counsellors (ACC)

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.

Further information

How I Work

After an initial assessment to determine which therapy process is suitable for you, we will work together in a partnership. At times homework may be given, simply to enhance the process and therefore reduce the time and money spent in therapy.

As a registered member of the ACC and BACP, I ensure that I abide by their Ethical Frameworks.

I look forward to working with you to help you achieve a new sense of life!
