Integrative Counsellor, MBACP

About me

Hello and thank you for reading my profile. I am an experienced integrative counsellor who tailors counselling for each individual as we are all unique. I offer a safe, compassionate and confidential space for you to work out the best way forward for you. 

I work with adults and young people from the age of 16 and have a wide variety of experience including working with the impact of trauma and those who are experiencing depression and anxiety. I understand what a huge effect these things can have on our lives and I collaborate closely with individuals to work towards a brighter future. 

My counselling

I offer a compassionate and confidential space for you to get to the root of what is distressing you or holding you back and help you live a more authentic and meaningful life.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor which means that I have many tools to help you. These are the main principles behind my counselling:

  • I believe the answers are within you and I help you find the answers.
  • My holistic approach means that we can work on joining awareness of body and mind which benefits wellbeing.
  • I believe our childhood, early life and past relationships shape us. Exploring and coming to terms with our past can be transforming.
  • Creativity can be incredibly restorative. I can work with art, stories and objects if suitable.
  • Trauma is stored in the. body unless it is processed and I can help you to process that trauma.
  • As I am also a personal performance coach I can work in a very goal orientated way if useful.

Taking the next step

I am happy to have a no-obligation chat via phone or email to give you a chance to ask any questions you may have. The reduced cost of £30 for the first session gives you a chance to see if my counselling might be right for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)
  • Certificate in Couples Counselling
  • Extensive continuing professional development including training on inner child work, chronic illness, DID, eating disorders and working with suicidal thoughts.

In addition to my private practice I have worked as a volunteer for a homeless charity, working with young people and for a charity helping survivors of sexual abuse.

Prior to being a counsellor I worked in Human Resources for many years. This has given me a special insight into the stresses and strains of work life and issues in the workplace such as bullying and stress. I am also well-equipped to help anyone who would like to change career.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair access is possible in Cowley but not Headington.
