My work as my training suggests is strongly connected to Soul.
I believe in the importance of body and mind balance. In our general life we are often forced to 'live' in our heads that promotes the disconnection from our bodies and this disconnection could cause many difficulties in our lives; either emotional, psychological or physical. My aim is to help clients to find their way back to their bodies and by doing so, live a fuller and more connected life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified, Integrative transpersonal counsellor.
I trained in Integrative Transpersonal counselling with special emphasis on the Soul and the Soul's journey. I trained at Re-Vision, Counselling and Psychotherapy with a Soulful Perspective.
My main experience is within the field of trauma. I've been working with survivors of rape and sexual abuse where I also encountered other difficulties that had presented themselves as serious blocks for clients including depression, loss and anxiety.
I also completed a training in embodied psychotherapy and somatic experiencing at the Institute of Embodied Psychotherapy which reaffirmed my beliefs about our bodies being amazing 'tools' and integral parts of our journey to healing. The aim is a balance between mind, body and soul. (www.embodiedpsychotherapy.org.uk)
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Searching for a therapist can be a daunting task especially when we feel vulnerable.
I'd like to encourage you to try to connect to what you need and start from there; only you know what feels right...
An initial meeting with a therapist is a helpful first step in making a decision which does not need to happen straight away.
Just remember that the choice is yours...
