I have many years experience as an NHS psychotherapist treating moderate to severe psychological issues. I also lectured at the University of Southampton in counselling, psychotherapy and forensic mental health.
I am experienced in working with adults, children, adolescents and young people, dealing with a wide range of issues.
Each person comes to therapy with a unique history and way of being. I tailor my work to fit these individual needs.
Having trained and practiced in a range of Therapeutic models enables me to assess the best approach for my client's particular needs. However, research shows that the most important factor in sucessful therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. This is central to my practice.
My NHS work included running clinics both within the psychiatric hospital and in the community
I have also managed a multi-disciplinary psychological service.
Some of the issues I may be able to help with include:
Low self esteem
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 15 years of solid experience across a range of services. This has included working for the NHS as a Specialist Psychotherapist and Lecturing at the University of Southampton in Intergrative Therapy.
I have a Psychodynamic diploma, Humanistic Certificate and Transactional analysis 101. I am experienced in facilitating both group and individual therapy in a range of models.
I am registered with the British Assosciation for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework.
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.
