As a professional, Adlerian psychotherapist and supervisor with ten of years experience working with a wide variety of issues, I have learned that life can give us many difficulties. If you need support, I believe that feeling heard and understood is very important. I offer you a warm, welcoming and confidential space where, together we can explore and appreciate your troubles. I will work at your pace, taking into account the many things that can effect your state of mind, especially when this undermines your ability to cope.
I have the ability to work with early childhood decisions about self, others and the world as they are often still underlying your behaviour in the present day. These insights can give you a greater understanding when looking at possible solutions to a way forward in life. If this not appropriate for you I can tailor my approach to meet your particular needs.
To get started you can call or email to set up an initial session where we can talk about what you are hoping to achieve from counselling. If you are happy to continue we can then set up a second session and arrange to see each other weekly or fortnightly depending on your requirements.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Diploma in Adlerian Counselling
- Certificate in Supervision CRUSE
I have volunteered with CRUSE Bereavement Care since 2008. Initially as a bereavement support worker and more recently as a Supervisor. This experience has given me a deep respect for the experience of grief and the ability to provide support during loss.
As an external counsellor for Dyfed Powys Police, I received training to offer a Rewind technique that effectively treats trauma/PTSD. I can extend this technique to treat trauma/PTSD to all my clients.
Having worked extensively with Narcissism, I can support those affected by it in all its presentations. More recently, working with ADHD has given me an understanding of its impact on quality of life and how best to manage it.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
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).
