About me

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. 

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
