About me

I am a qualified integrative transpersonal psychotherapist. I have a bachelor’s degree in Behavioural Science and a post-graduate degree in Neuropsychotherapy. I am now qualified with a Master of Science in Consciousness, Spirituality and Transpersonal Psychology. I use a holistic approach to healing, growth and transformation. Transpersonal counselling incorporates body, mind and spirit in the process. The model I use draws on the principles of psychoanalytical, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), person-centred, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Neuropsychotherapy, gestalt, creative art therapies, sand-play, mindfulness, existential and the transpersonal.

I aim to create a safe environment, to listen, be empathic through a non-judgement attitude, seeing clients as unique and individual. The therapeutic space creates a co-created awareness to facilitate change, transformation and healing.

I also have counselling sessions via Skype, Zoom or Microsoft team. Counselling, adults and young people and children with different ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious and cult. I am a qualified therapist, with over 20 years of experience.

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.
