About me

I have 14 years experience as a trained integrative counsellor I support you with a multi disciplined approach) I look at a client's need individually), working with diverse issues including abuse, anxiety, esteem, loss, identity, addiction and  relationships.

Whatever the issue,I help facilitate the changes you wish to make for a happier life.  I provide a safe, non judgemental and very caring space to talk.  I am open and work with you to achieve your personal goals.

My training consists of a range of modules ( including  psychodynamic looking at behaviour and emotions within a humanistic framework,  enabling- clients to explore.)  I assist client's in developing more self awareness/ use of practical tools to support them in their therapeutic healing process.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
