I know from my own experience how daunting choosing a therapist is!
I have had my own therapy and have found it at times challenging but a hugely rewarding experience.
I have worked with clients of a variety of ages and many different issues.
My belief is that by letting someone else in and ‘sharing the load’ can alleviate some anxiety and you can feel as though you are not in it alone.
Life can be challenging, as therapy sometimes is too, but as both a therapist and as a client I have found it to be life changing. It can facilitate a deeper understanding of yourself and help to make any changes you would like to.
Many problems such as depression, anxiety and relationship difficulties are areas that affect many people in all walks of life. You don’t have to struggle by on your own.
I will not judge you or tell you what you must do. I will sit along side you, listen and support you in the choices you make and talk through how you are feeling. Sometimes that is what is missing from our lives.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Psychodynamic)
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.
