About me

I work in a way that is tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual client. My core training is in Psychosynthesis, an integrative and transpersonal model of therapy. My holistic approach will look at what you experience through your mind, body and feelings and always holds space for what is trying to emerge through the presenting problem, as well as offering support for managing life's challenges.

I also see the past, present and ideas of the future as interrelated which enables me to support you whether you wish to explore how you were, how you are or how you would like to be.

I also work in a relational way, meaning I bring core values of compassion, respect and inclusiveness in to our work and will bring my own human-ness in to the space.

My main areas of specialisation and experience are with:

  • perinatal mental health
  • grief and bereavement
  • depression & lack of meaning
  • co-dependency
  • relationships & interpersonal skills
  • workplace stress
  • personal crisis
  • anger & rage
  • need for self-exploration/self-discovery
  • low self-esteem
  • coping with change

The first appointment is an opportunity for both of us to decide whether we wish to work together and, if so, negotiate a contract. I will ask you some questions about yourself, your history, what makes you seek therapy at this time in your life and your hopes from therapy. We will also discuss how I work, fees, confidentiality and the practical arrangements for working together.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
