Hi I am Cassandra, I work as an integrative counsellor, which means I use a lot of different psychological methods and theories in my practice. I also incorporate person-centred principles into my work to help me provide a service completely tailored to your needs. I feel it is important to offer a warm, welcoming environment that ensures we develop a good therapeutic relationship, with trust and empathy at its heart.
You, as the client, are at the centre of the whole counselling process and are free to bring your problems to the sessions. Together we will explore the impact that your thoughts and feelings are having on your life, looking at different ways to facilitate change.
I like to provide a safe space to support you in restoring your confidence and self-esteem; build on your skills and knowledge of yourself; develop resilience and find a way to fulfil your potential.
The counselling process can support you to make sense of your experiences and develop a 'ToolKit' of strategies that you can use in the future.
It is important that you feel confident in me as a counsellor and that there are ethical guidelines that inform my practice. I follow the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Code of Ethics to ensure good practice and I am a registered member of this organisation.

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

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).
