I have an relational integrative approach as a qualified registered therapist/ person centred counsellor. I offer one to one, relationship and family counselling. I can provide brief solution focused therapy, if the client/employer requires it. My qualification was undertaken at the University of Wales College of Medicine; this provided a strong, ethical, scientific and evidence based foundation for my practice. When working with clients I am able to draw on a variety of psychoanalytical and person centered approaches which are proven to have beneficial outcomes for long term positive change. These methods enable the individual /couple/ family members to become self aware, gain knowledge of the root cause of their distress, gain insight, knowledge and emotional skills in a safe supportive space from which positive personal development takes place. This is a pro-active way of gaining balanced mental health and well being.
I have undertaken additional training in Mentorship, Supervision Adult Dyslexia Screening and coaching for those looking for a Coaching approach to work and/or life related issues
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.
