Hello, and thanks for viewing my profile.
I am an integrative therapist and have been working therapeutically since 2017.
I provide counselling via zoom and in-person.
Your experience of me is the most important part of therapy.
I believe that the relationship is the therapy and will work you to build a therapeutic relationship within which you feel safe, protected, heard, and experienced, perhaps for the first time.
I will help you work through uncomfortable behaviours which are, often, protective defence mechanisms. I will work with you, up to and beyond that point of facing that thing you are most afraid of.
Once our relationship is on the move, we can bring in neurobiology which connects the brain to the body, we can work with and develop your abilities.
Sometimes therapy is about you discovering you have all the resources you need, within yourself, all I do is help you to bring them out.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a CPCAB Level 4 diploma in therapeutic counselling. I access continuing education material and have certificates in Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal theory, sensorimotor approaches and psycho-education approaches which help me work with the mind/body connection in relation to relationships, trauma and, anxiety.
My training encourages and allows me to be adaptable and flexible, however, if for whatever reason I'm not the best therapist for you, I'll talk through with you how to find find someone who is.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
