About me

My offer is for one to one counselling for anyone needing help with general mental health issues and specifically, feelings of anger.

Training, qualifications & experience

I've been working therapeutically since 1999-helping people to achieve health and fitness goals they had set out for themselves. In order to be better at working with mental health goals I gained my CPCAB level 4 diploma in integrative counselling- person centred and psychodynamic approaches.

I work more extensively on the mental health side and have worked in adult education, primary and secondary education on a wide range of emotional, behavioural and cognitive issues within an ever developing relationship.

In 2018 I began working with male perpetrators of domestic violence in a dedicated anger management agency. The aim of the agency was to help men to change their behaviour and accept their vulnerable feelings. I empathise with how difficult it is for men to express vulnerable feelings and to have them accepted by other men. Society, through our parents, tells us how to be men a women and sometimes the teachings such as "big boys don't cry" can lead to mental ill health. I helped men change in this agency by addressing what anger meant to them and I have continued working in this way: with the meanings experiences have to to the individual in both children and adults.

I am a qualified athletics coach, personal trainer and massage therapist with an interest in exercise as therapy.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
