Sometimes the problems we are faced with, can overwhelm us and our mental wellbeing and behaviour are affected by it. Even our upbringing and early experiences in life can impact on the way we feel and behave now in adulthood. Therapy can help us to open up about our problems and experiences, making sense of them, process them and move forward. With this in mind, I will be by your side, helping you to explore the difficulties you face in a safe, non-judgemental, warm and nurturing environment. We will process your emotions and feelings and find new coping skills and solutions, enabling you to grow towards the person you strive to be.
The sessions are led by you and since every person has their own unique experiences, the techniques I use, are tailored specifically to your needs. To help you process your difficulties and positively change, we may use behavioural techniques, mindfulness, interventions around attachment theory, compassion focused therapy or acceptance & commitment therapy.
I believe that a trusting and good therapeutic relationship between yourself and your counsellor is important. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to find out more about how working together could look like and how change can be achieved. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
Training, qualifications & experience
I entered the MSc Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy program with the University of Derby and I qualified in 2021. I also hold a BSc Psychology degree. I have been a volunteer counsellor since 2017, working with adults on an individual basis.
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.
