About me

I am grateful for each and every opportunity I come across to work with individuals (both young and mature), couples, families and groups to facilitate learning and understanding of personal issues, relationship dynamics and other life situations to promote shift or change.

I have spent a great deal of time understanding my own personal history and in doing so I have learned that seeking help is a powerful step forward rather than an admittance of weakness. We all have an individual life story that at times we find difficult to manage, make sense of, change or accept. Feeling content with our lives can be difficult in an ever-changing demanding 21st Century life. I believe that by simple communication on a safe and confidential level we can feel hopeful to achieve our goals and build confidence and inner resourcefulness to see ourselves as ‘good enough’ people, parents, husbands, wives, lovers and friends.

My work has allowed me to experience a diverse range of people and presenting issues such as depression, anxiety, attachment, shame, loss, bereavement, addiction (drugs/sex/alcohol), identity (sexual/cultural/personal), erectile dysfunction, sexuality, abuse, pre & post natal depression, trauma, childhood trauma, dual heritage and migration in both long term and brief settings.

I create, develop and facilitate a variety of workshops and courses including anger management, self -development and emotional awareness workshops and courses and provide follow-up counselling sessions, advice, assessments where possible and have a proven track record of positive outcomes.

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.
