Clients often are referred to me with anxiety, relationship, self esteem and confidence challenges. I work from a humanistic integrative perspective, so focusing more on underlying emotional causes. However, often they won't know exactly why they are here until they start.
Come and meet me for a complementary, obligation free consultation in a quiet part of London Road Near the Duke of York cinema to see if you are comfortable with me. My approach is always client led so you are always in control.
I also work extensively with students studying counselling and offer a concessionary rate for both them and people who might be less able to pay.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a full member of the BACP and appear on the accredited register. I spent 4 years qualifying in Bournemouth on a fully approved CPCAB course. I have worked with a large variety of issues and situations and both privately and for the NHS as well as other agencies. I work primarily as a Humanistic Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor focusing more on emotions, which are the root cause of our deeper make-up, though I use cognitive tools and CBT practices when relevant. I also work as a coach in business, divorce and general life change.
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.

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).
