About me

Helping clients suffering with work stress using counselling 

Possible positive benefits of Counselling 

  • Understanding of self and triggers for addictive or unhelpful behaviours
  • Trust in yourself to handle life’s challenges
  •  Learning your boundaries and having the self-awareness to put these in place
  • Creating trust in yourself towards positive solutions.
  • Processing past events enabling a shift to move forward.
  • Learning healthier ways to cope with stress.
  • A greater understanding of your part in relationship dynamics 
  • Enabling a space to think about kindness and compassion towards yourself and others
     

We all have our limits and understand that sometimes there can be a feeling of shame admitting you are struggling to cope. There is courage in knowing what you need and when to get help.

Offering a confidential space tailoring the sessions to the individuals needs using a combination of psychodynamic, mindful, and cognitive approaches. 

Psychodynamic counselling: this focuses on unconscious and conscious thought processes. Sometimes experiences in the past can influence our present behaviour beyond our current awareness, causing difficulties with relationships and other important areas of life. I work to try and help you come to your own understanding of those influences and experiences creating space to be curious about our choices and how we can then redefine, reposition, and move forward.

 About:
I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) Accredited Psychodynamic Counsellor. I trained and worked with Gloucestershire Counselling Service for 7 years; after completing my diploma I continued to develop my skills further by attending a Postgraduate Associate Year and Postgraduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. After my training I worked as a staff Counsellor and Assessment Counsellor . During this time, I also worked for a national addiction charity. In addition to my counselling qualifications I have experience of working within a large PLC sales company and understand the pressures and expectations within this environment. I have over 10 years counselling experience and continue to develop my skill set attending regular professional development courses and seminars. I have a particular interest in how stress manifests in the body, and the impact this has on the self. I now work via Zoom and phone in private practice and specialise in helping people with work stress.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
