Thank you for stopping by. Seeking help can be challenging; there is the worry if the therapist is the right person for you. If you are strong enough to take a look at what is troubling you, or what may come up as you start to think about things beyond the immediate problem.
I offer a space where you can take time to unpack what you have held on to for a while. Or what you may have been surprised by recently. Perhaps your dealing with something that has simply left you feeling overwhelmed? In any case, it may come as no surprise to you, but as you read you have made a start in working towards understanding what you are sitting with now.
So where do we go from here? I believe whether you feel stuck, less engaged, indulging more than you would like to, a different opportunity waits with accessing therapy. It is a chance to explore the roots of your current difficulties; from the start, establish if this is the right time for you or address any concerns.
Please feel free to contact me, if you have any questions you would like to discuss before setting up an initial appointment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy, and I am experienced in working with individuals to address the challenges they face.
Alongside private practice, I have worked at Centre70 a community based charity for several years, and have been accustomed to working with Anxiety, Depression, HIV diagnosis, Identity issues, Relationship difficulties, Rape, Self-esteem and other life changing events and transitions.
The icon below my profile here means I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their guidelines.
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.
