About me

Have you ever asked yourself:

  • Why do I think this way?
  • Am I going mad?
  • Why do I always feel depressed?
  • Why do I always ruin everything?
  • Am I unlovable?
  • How can I get what I want?
  • What do I really want?
  • Does everybody hate me?
  • Why am I so stupid?
  • Will I ever get over it?

Do you need an emotional systems upgrade?
We can all experience problems from time to time; this does not mean you are weak, it just means you're human. However, we can modify our emotional and cognitive systems to alleviate distress and to improve functionality.

I am an integrative psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, mental health practitioner, trainer and coach, with an emphasis on inter-personal relationships.
My practice is called Assimilative Integration which means that I have been professionally trained in numerous different theoretical approaches, and I assimilate these modes depending on the client. In short, the therapy is designed and built around your needs.

Therapeutic Services

Often, counselling and psychotherapy can help us come to terms with our history and assist us in making sense of it. Counselling can also help us move forward with agreed goals and objectives. However, Counselling can often be too restrictive and often does not offer us the flexibility to learn and thrive. Therefore, I offer a model based upon the therapeutic benefits of counselling but with the flexibility and forward moving attitude of Coaching. This enables me to really work completely within all areas of the client's life (e.g. career, relationships, sexlife, ambition, business, finance, etc.). In practical terms, this means we do not need to restrict ourself to the usual settings of counselling (e.g. the therapy room), or the other usual counselling restrictions (e.g. non-advisory, too reflective, too passive, too long!!!). We can really start to make a real difference in your life!!

There are options in your life and there is a way to improved living and performance!!!

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
