About me

As an integrative counsellor, I draw on a few theories (Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Gestalt) and tailor my approach to the client. I have a keen interest in Psychodynamic Counselling, which impacts my practice. I am focused on working in the present, making the unconscious conscious. We’ll explore patterns that have been established in early life and allow you to do something differently
 
I offer both long-term open-ended and short term counselling. Your needs are something we would discuss in our initial sessions.

Background

I spent over ten years as a Running Coach at Full Potential, designing training plans and supporting runners of all abilities. I felt there was more out there, so in 2018 I took a Level 2 Course in Counselling Skills. Within weeks I knew this was a career path I wanted to go down. 

I’ve always been inquisitive about understanding myself, and counselling allowed me to explore my past, present, and future in a way I have never done before. It helps me make sense of my world, which I want to offer to others. 

I am currently studying for a postgraduate Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling at Oxford University. I hope to turn this into a Masters over the next few years.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
