I am passionate about my work and have a wealth of valuable experience working in many areas, such as depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, eating disorders, OCD, self harm and feelings of suicide, as well as relationships, personal growth and spirituality.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor working with individuals and couples. I offer a warm, safe, confidential space to explore and work through troubling life experiences. I work holistically, with the person or relationship as a whole, helping to develop a sense of self awareness, growth and healing.
I have a special interest in working with individuals and couples who wish to 'prepare for parenthood', exploring and healing childhood wounds before creating families of their own. Also working with new and growing families, dealing with difficulties such as feelings of isolation or rejection, postnatal depression, relationship breakdown, domestic violence and blended families.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Foundation Degree in Therapeutic Counselling (FdA) and am a member of BACP (The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), as such, I am guided by their code of ethics and am committed to my own personal continued professional development.
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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
