Hello and Welcome,
I provide a safe, private space for you to explore whatever it is that has brought you to look into counselling. A typical session would last one hour, I am very much guided by you and what you are looking to understand and work on, making my sessions bespoke to your needs.
I am trained in the Person Centred Method, having graduated in 2007 and predominately work this way. I also have training in Meditation, Neuro-linguistic programming and Psychodynamic Counselling.
Reaching out can be the hardest part. I want to encourage you to be bold, this is your first step to finding the change you want to make.
I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation initially to see if we want to work together. If you don't think I'm right for you I'm happy to support you to find someone who is.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained in the Personal Centred Method at the University of Strathclyde, graduating in 2007.
Since that time I have completed further training in Neuro-linguistic programming, Psychodynamic Counselling and Meditation practice.
I have experience working face to face and over the phone as a Counsellor. Due to recent events I now also work via Zoom to offer video sessions.
I have worked within the corporate environment where my focus was with anxiety, work life balance and stress management.
I now run a general private practice, I work with people from all walks of life and with a variety of challenges.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I work flexibly, I'm sure we can find a time to suit both of us.
