About me

                       “Where Your Story Matters”


We all struggle with many things in our lives, be that various trauma, from major or minor incidents, along with equality issues, organisational issues, bereavement, self harm, family issues, depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder(PTSD), personality disorders, and many other issues. No matter how low or out of control these issues make us feel, with the right support and relationship the positive personal growth within us all will fight through.

What you can expect from me is that I will listen to your story in a non-judgemental way, so that we can build a therapeutic relationship together where you can feel safe, supported and able to explore the thoughts you want to share, and work towards you becoming your best self.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychotherapist with a BA Honours degree from the University of Warwick in Person-centred Counselling and the Psychotherapeutic Relationship. I am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and follow their ethical framework, ensuring that you can expect the highest level of therapy and confidentiality. I have experience of working with children and adults and have a current Disclosure and Barring certificate (DBS). I have also worked within public service for over 30 years and been vetted to a very high standard.

I am further qualified in bereavement counselling, with a knowledge of CBT, Psychodynamic and Transactional Analysis styles whilst always working in a Humanistic, Person Centred method, because you are the expert in your own life.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
