What is Integrative Counselling?
An integrative therapist uses a combination of counselling approaches. I take the view that there is no single approach that can treat a person in all situations. Each individual has different needs, I look at you and your life as a whole and use therapeutic techniques that are tailored to your needs and personal circumstances.
I believe that there are many ways in which human psychology can be explored and understood and no one theory holds the answer. All theories are considered to have value, hence the need to integrate them.
Essentially as an integrative counsellor, I am not only concerned with what works, but why it works, so I tailor therapy to suit your needs, lifestyle and personality.
Areas I work mostly with
- Anxiety-including anxiety-related conditions
- Trauma- vicarious and PTSD
- Fears and phobias.
- Childhood related issues

The National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP)
National Council of Psychotherapists
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).
