About me

Taking time to explore our own inner world is a gift few people allow themselves. Giving ourselves the space to explore our experiences and relationships can be hugely liberating and life changing.

About me and my therapy practice:

Our early experiences affect the way we think about ourselves, relate to others and adapt to stress later in our lives.

I offer my clients the freedom to pick the topics they wish to discuss in each session. This is important in my work as our thoughts, feelings, actions, dreams and experiences are all connected. They offer us clues into our concerns and unconscious. Exploring these can be hugely beneficial in helping make sense of what is underlying.

This offers the opportunity to really get honest with ourselves and confront our internal emotion truth. The traumas we suffer in life, no matter how small, can affect everything- from the partners we pick to the experiences we acknowledge or deny.

Our modern fast paced lifestyle has encouraged us to avoid thinking about emotional development in ourselves and our children. We often distract ourselves with gadgets, quick fixes and endless schedules finding ourselves exhausted and too busy to pause and dig deeper. In my work I offer the space to do just that.

Training, qualifications & experience

Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.
