Sometimes it can be difficult to let others know how you are really feeling. Maybe the effort of keeping your emotions in check is having a detrimental effect on your health. Sharing your concerns with someone who has a professional training and a lot of experience, who really listens to what you are experiencing and helps you to explore why your emotions are having such an impact on you at this time could be the first steps towards finding clarity and focus.
I have experience working with a wide range of life experiences, relationships and issues. This includes relationships within a family where I have developed a special interest. I am able to offer both short term counselling and if needed, longer term psychotherapy. I keep a number of spaces available for clients on a low income. I have current availability for counselling students.
One day in each month I donate all fees from clients seen on that day to a local mental health charity. '
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the BACP (integrative) and abide by their code of ethics.
I have also trained/ had experience with a wide range of issues including the following:
- Play therapy ( children )
- Adult individuals
- On line experiences
- Systemic issues ( families or workplace )
- Childhood sexual abuse
- Separation and divorce
- Generalised depression
- Bereavement and loss
- Domestic violence
- Emotionally abusive relationships.
My core training is as an integrative therapist. My approach is to use a way of working that suits my clients own background and emotional intelligence. I aim to find the right fit for my client so that my clients can develop trust in our working relationship.
I have worked with clients from the age of 6 through to 60 and beyond. Whatever my clients age or issue I take the time to listen and really understand what my clients are experiencing.
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).
