About me

My name is Charlie and I am an experienced psychotherapeutic humanistic counsellor. I have an integrative background and have experience of working with complex trauma, narcissistic and abusive relationship breakdowns alongside addiction, depression, anxiety and PTSD. 

I offer a safe, non-judgmental, warm and reflective space for you to work through and start to understand what has brought you to therapy. I work relationally which means we look to find a goal or direction, exploring together patterns and behaviours with therapeutic interventions. I am able to offer a deep level of emotional attunement and understanding through both my training and lived experience. 

I am trained in integrative counselling which means I can be flexible to your needs as therapy develops. I offer a Humanistic approach with Gestalt, person-centred, attachment theory and others tools. I also find that psycho-educational tools can be useful to fully explore and understand the bigger picture. 

I have a unique perspective of having faced and lived through much complex trauma, such as being care experienced, bereavement and being a young carer. I bring compassion and deep empathy to the work of exploring what has brought you to therapy seeking to support you on a journey to mental wellness. 

I offer a free 30 minute consultation, this is a space for any questions you might have.

Member organisations

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.
