I'm an integrative relational counsellor. That means I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches and I tailor my approach to suit you. This might mean exploring past experiences and traumas or staying focused on current challenges. For some, it might mean adopting a problem-solving approach informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Positive Psychology. However we choose to work, it will be in the context of an empathetic, trusting relationship that helps you to a deeper understanding of what makes you tick in a supportive environment.
I love working with people of all ages to help them overcome feelings such as anxiety, depression and that nagging sense of pointlessness which dogs so many of us.
I have extensive experience within the education system at all levels and I have many clients who are neurodivergent.
For me, the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the key to success. I will work with you to explore the way you think, feel, sense and perceive the world. We will sit together, as equals. I will offer empathy, support and, if it will be helpful, challenge.
Most of all, I will listen to you.
When we meet, we will agree on what we are working towards and consider what progress will look like for you. In this way I will attempt to ensure that your experience of counselling will be unique, individualised and relevant.

Call (07395 132908) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll arrange for a complimentary 20 minute phone session; when we can talk about what you want to get out of counselling. If you're happy to continue, we can make plans for further sessions, usually on a weekly basis.

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.
