I am an integrative relational counsellor, which means I combine a variety of therapeutic approaches so that as we work together I can adapt to your needs.
There are many reasons why people decide to come to therapy. You might be feeling overwhelmed and anxious or stuck and frustrated and you’d like to get clearer about what it is that is bothering you. Or, perhaps, you know what you want to explore and you’d like some help to address those thoughts, feelings and behaviors that you find challenging.
My background and experience:
As a counsellor in an NHS medical practice, I assisted clients with many issues, for example, bereavement, trauma, depression, unfair dismissal, menopause, anxiety, affairs, sex addiction. I have also been employed in a global company to support employees mental health during COVID19. I am also qualified mindfulness practitioner and hold mindfulness sessions globally.
It is my belief that counselling is not about seeking perfection, but is, rather a process towards acceptance of the whole self. To this end you are invited to explore the influence of your past, the realities of your present and the significance of those aspects of life that exist beyond the every day and purely rational, such as the realm of the imagination and connection with the natural world.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the BACP and practice within the Ethical Framework and I am committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental environment.
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.
