If you are interested in meeting with me I offer a 50 minute initial Assessment session. This gives you the opportunity to meet me and decide if you wish to proceed with further sessions and it gives me the opportunity to identify what brings you to therapy.

I  have worked privately for a number of years and previously worked for charities in a voluntary role.

The Humanistic Approach:

Humanistic Counselling emphasises the need for empathy. It's aim is to assist the client to develop a stronger, healthier sense of self. As well as uncovering and understanding their feelings to help them gain a sense of meaning to their world.

Humanistic Philosophy

I truly believe that despite the various difficulties we may experience in life, every individual has the natural  ability to realise their potential. It is also important for me to have the equal relationship with clients that Humanistic theory promotes.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
