People come to therapy for many different reasons; whatever your reason, therapy is a unique experience. It can offer you an environment where you begin to make sense of your experiences, both past and present, and discover how you feel about them.
I like to create a space that is both safe and supportive and work collaboratively with my clients. Together we explore what has brought you to therapy, talk about what you’re going through and begin to make sense of how things are for you. Talking together allows us to consider different perspectives, other choices that might be available to you.
There’s no agenda, no assumption or judgement on what you want to talk about. Sometimes the process is challenging, but as we begin to make sense of things, we can explore ways that will help you to move forward in your life.
I am an integrative therapist who draws on the approaches of psychodynamic and humanistic theories. This means we are able to explore patterns of behaviour that may have possible links to the past alongside what is happening in your life in the here and now.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the BACP and hold an MA in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy.
I also have an MPhil in Conflict Management.
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.
