How counselling can help: We all experience times in our life when we feel 'stuck' or overwhelmed, or lacking in direction or purpose ... and it's at times like these when we might need a little support in facing our challenges and making positive change. As a counsellor my role is to provide a safe, empowering, non-judgemental and empathic space where you can voice your concerns, be truly listened to and understood.
Counselling isn't about giving advice or solutions, it is about empowering you to examine your life, make meaningful choices and invoke your own changes.
I appreciate how the challenges and pressure of life can take their toll on health, relationships and day to day mental and physical well-being. As a qualified integrative counsellor, I combine theoretical knowledge with compassion to find the best way to work with clients holistically, incorporating mind, body and spirit.
Get in touch: making the decision to see a counsellor might seem a big step to take - but it's a positive one. Why not message or call me to find out more about how working together we can explore your situation in a way that facilitates the discovery and development of your inner resources, strengths and potential.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Integrative Counselling (Inter-Psyche Training Institute: part of Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust)
As a fully qualified counsellor, I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework and principles of good practice.
I am an experienced counsellor providing both short-term (6-12 sessions) and open-ended longer term therapy both in-person and online. I've worked with people from all walks of life and backgrounds who have been experiencing a diverse range of problems.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
