I think you are amazing! I value, without judgement, your strengths and challenges as being uniquely you at this point in time and I’m here to facilitate your self-discovery, healing and growth in the direction you want it to go.
All emotions are welcome. I’m not afraid of tears and you can use whatever language best expresses how you feel. Feel free to be really angry if you want to.
Everything you bring is valued. I am happy to explore your thoughts, dreams, values, hopes, fantasies, love, worry, shame, fear, sex and anything you want to talk about.
I am LGBTQ+ affirmative and have a good understanding of neurodiversity. Everyone is unique, so I don’t believe there is a one size fits all approach to counselling. I work in an Integrative way. This means I have an understanding of how we function and grow and I use different approaches and techniques to facilitate where you want to get to and support you in that process.
There is no pressure for long term therapy, you stay for as long as you feel it’s beneficial. Some people just want a one-off 60-minute session, some every week and some every few weeks. It’s up to you and my availability. If you are with me for a few sessions then we will review how things are going, if we are going in the right direction and if this is still benefitting you.
I understand that choosing a counsellor can be daunting and we may not ‘click’. I offer a free 30-minute introductory session, which we can do online or face to face.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Iron Mill College in Exeter.
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
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.
