Bloom within counselling and psychotherapy

About me

"They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel."

What can therapy with me offer you? Freedom to be you and to feel no judgement as well as being truly heard. Therapy with me can give you support and empower you to share your feelings and sit within them in order to move forward with difficult issues that may be affecting you. Being validated and understood in therapy in a safe place can help you find yourself and my aim is to work with you to look at different areas of your life. I work in an integrative way and offer intervention using CBT, Attachment Theory and Person-centred in order to reach your goals in therapy.

I have worked largely with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, negative critical voice, perfectionism, loss, shame and stress. I also have experience working with clients who have experienced trauma, domestic abuse, sexual violence,  relationship issues and adapt and tailor my sessions to the individual and their presenting problems. In addition to this, I have a wealth of knowledge and experience of burnout and compassion fatigue and work well with those who are experiencing this.

I work well with those who haven't had counselling before, those who find it hard to open up about their feelings, and those that may have experienced difficulties in therapy before. 

I offer a free telephone conversation assessment in order for you to decide if you would like to work with me and what therapy goals could be set. Therapy is personal and vulnerable and I want to ensure you are comfortable to work with me so we can be collaborative in the sessions.

I have worked with teenagers in a school and college setting as well as adults in a domestic violence refuge and Mind Charity. I also have connections to the NHS IAPT service in Staffordshire and mental health services in Derbyshire currently. 

I am based in Belper, Derbyshire and have counselling connections in Lichfield, Tamworth, Burton and Derby. 

***Soon to be returning to face to face sessions in Belper, Derbyshire***

Currently available is online and telephone sessions.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
