Coming to talk to someone about your deepest most personal thoughts and feelings takes a lot of courage. I will offer you respect, honesty and understanding which I believe will help you to look at your most challenging and painful experiences that you are finding hard to deal with. I believe very strongly in the sincerity and openness of the counselling relationship, and that is why I chose to qualify as a Person-Centred Counsellor.
The Person-Centred approach is centred around the counselling relationship. It respects the uniqueness of every individual; there is no technique, agenda nor right or wrong way to work through issues. You, the client, will choose your journey, at your pace, in your time, and I am committed to walking beside you along the way. I believe that any individual has the resources within them to find a way through their pain and struggles when a safe, caring, respectful, and honest environment is created.
Very often, in my experience, as an individual starts to talk openly about their thoughts and feelings, they come to an awareness that a lot of issues stem back to their childhood. I am offering specialised counselling to help you explore these experiences. This is called 'inner child' therapy that can lead to longterm changes and healing.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an Advanced Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling, and a Diploma in Supervision.
Over the past seventeen years, I have had extensive training regarding relationship struggles/issues. I have worked one-on-one with men, women and young people who have been victims of child abuse, domestic abuse, and rape. I have also worked with individuals who are struggling with food disorders, self harm, suicidal tendencies, mental health issues, OCD, sexuality, HIV/Aids, stress, anxiety, personal loss, grief, anger, and self esteem issues.

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.
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.
