My approach is to be curious, open and collaborative, creating a safe, non-judgemental space that facilitates exploration and awareness. We will work together to better understand your feelings and behaviours and break emotional patterns that no longer serve you. I work in in an integrative way, my training was Adlerian counselling and psychotherapy but I have also been influenced by a background in psychology and disciplines such as Psychoanalysis, CBT and Narrative therapy.
I began working in mental health over 15 years ago. I have worked with diverse client groups in various settings from the non profit sector to in-patient psychiatric facilities. I have worked with issues including stress and anxiety and depression, trauma, eating disorders, OCD, personality disorders and with survivors of rape and sexual abuse.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Adlerian Counselling & Psychotherapy MBACP
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.
