I believe we are all capable of living meaningful and satisfying lives both as individuals and in relationship with others. Counselling is an opportunity to look at some of the things that may be hindering that ability. My training in Integrative Psychosynthesis helps me adapt my approach to suit each client's situation. I draw inspiration from the writings of Thomas Moore, particularly his book, Care of the Soul, which emphasises the importance of honouring soul in our everyday lives. I am also influenced by Marion Woodman, a Jungian analyst, who honours body, soul and spirit. Although our work together will be mainly through dialogue, we may also look at dreams, myths and other creative arts as these are ways that the deepest longings of our souls make themselves known.
'There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.'
From time to time we all need to tell our stories and, through being listened to, see them in a new light that can healing.

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

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.
