About me

Welcome to my profile,

As an integrative psychodynamic counsellor, I provide a warm, non-judgmental, and compassionate space for you to work through any difficult thoughts, feelings, and events in your life. The integrative and psychodynamic model is a verified and established method of therapy for successfully healing mental and emotional distress. Within this framework, individuals gradually become more aware of aspects previously outside of their awareness. Opening up to talk about your past or the places in your life where you feel stuck can be difficult but just by coming here, you’ve already taken the first step.

I use a range of modalities, such as psychodynamic, humanistic, trauma-informed, body psychotherapy, person-centered, CBT, Gestalt, working with inner child, and transpersonal to build the therapy around you and what you need. My therapy reflects working with all aspects of who you are as a person: mind, body, and spirit.

Therapy is a process that requires commitment, patience, and a wish to change. Sessions will be conducted weekly for fifty minutes. Depending on availability and need this can be increased to meeting more frequently. The focus will be on whatever is on your mind and what you want to work through.

I believe that finding the right therapist for you is incredibly important to allow you to feel comfortable enough to get the most out of therapy. Our first session will therefore be an opportunity for us both to get to know each other; for you to tell me about what’s brought you to therapy and to learn more about how I work as a therapist. If it feels like I'm the right person for you we can then decide the best way to work together.

I have worked in a variety of mental health and therapeutic settings, supporting individuals struggling with a range of issues, including:

- anxiety

- depression

- abuse

- domestic violence

- bereavement

- family issues

- relationship issues

- ADHD

- social anxiety

- narcissistic abuse

- low self-esteem

- low confidence and many more

From the start, we will agree on what you would like to get out of therapy. However, we will be reviewing the work as we move along, offering you the opportunity to reflect on your progress and how we are doing. It is not uncommon for initial goals to change as the therapeutic work evolves.

Feel free to contact me for a friendly chat, or email me, if you are considering a therapy.

I am looking forward to meeting and working with you.

Best wishes,

Barbara

Member organisations

BACP
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

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).
