Today's lifestyle is usually travelling at 100 mph and before you know it another year has passed. When do you ever get the chance to stop, look at what is happening with your emotions and the life around you? Perhaps you are feeling something is not right in your life but cant put your finger on it?
Counselling is an open space to take a moment to pause and reflect. It is a regular time slot which you have for yourself with a counsellor to talk about anything which is causing you concern. Together we will explore your thoughts, emotions and make sense of what sometimes can feel like a huge blur.
Psychodynamic counselling is a style of counselling I am trained in, which explores your past experiences and how they impact on your behaviour today. Being in counselling is a commitment to yourself to face those difficult emotions and really get to understand your personality in a safe place.
I am an open-minded person who enjoys helping people through life's challenges. I have supported clients who have anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, relationship concerns, bipolar disorder and low self esteem. I am affiliated with Vitality Health and Aetna Global Health Benefits EAP.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified with a BACP accredited Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling at Highgate Counselling Centre. I can offer both long term and short term counselling. I work towards the BACP ethical code of practice.
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.
