About me

Do you want to improve the way you live and understand why you live the way you do now?

Whatever issues you face, I can help you to make sense of what is happening and find a path through and out of it. Our sessions will offer you a space in which to be really heard, and to explore your difficulties, in complete confidence.

We will look at how your life is now, why things are happening in the way they are, and where your behaviours and worries stem from.

I will help you to understand why you feel, think and behave the way you do. These often stem from the coping strategies we have devised to get us through life, but which no longer serve us.

So, therapy will enable you to understand who you are, what you want and how you can address your problems. This will allow you to build up your own sense of self, to trust in yourself and face the world with more confidence.

This is all achieved in a supportive environment, in which you will not be judged or criticised, but instead regarded in a positive light. The underlying idea (devised from the humanistic theory of Carl Rogers) is that all people are destined to grow and we will tap into that. My approach does not just concentrate on difficulties but also on your potential.

I am an integrative therapist, which means I know many psychotherapy theories and will use the ones best suited to you. We are all unique, so this method ensures that you benefit from the most suitable expertise and research.

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.
