I am a person centered and psychodynamic counsellor incorporating CBT and solution focused techniques. I work a lot with the unconscious mind; 95 percent of brain activity is beyond our conscious awareness, so it's helpful to delve into the root of our problems that may be hidden from our consciousness. I work creatively with adults, young people and children using art therapy, guided visualisations and stone work to make the therapy experience less intimidating. I teach mindfulness, help people grow in personal development and overcoming past traumas.
I offer a non-judgemental, creative space for clients. I help clients become aware of the mind/body communication system which helps traumas. I offer ways to change the feelings connected to the memories and develop a much greater awareness of the psyche. I offer coping mechanisms and mindfulness teachings to take away practical skills.

I have a degree in Integrative counselling, I offer psychodynamic and person centered talking therapy with CBT techniques. I am trained in guided imagery and visualisations for therapeutic change. I am trained in mindfulness and somatic experiencing.
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.
